It seems like just yesterday that I was gearing up to lead the 2011 Native Plant Corps team here at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Now, a year later I’m at it again and even more excited to be coming back to INDU for a second season!
I grew up on a farm in southern New Jersey before moving to Virginia to go to college. During college I served with SCA as a Conservation Intern at Shenandoah National Park. I graduated with a B.A. of Environmental Science and have been working with SCA ever since. I’ve led crews in Mammoth Cave National Park, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, and Everglades National Park. I’ve also been lucky enough to be part of a couple SCA leader crews in Point Reyes National Seashore and the Mojave Desert.
When I’m not off globetrotting with SCA I spend my time gardening, reading, hiking, camping, geeking out at National Parks, and pretty much doing anything that lets me get outside and enjoy some fresh air. Come to think of it, my hobbies are pretty much the same as my SCA work…go figure.
