After serving as a FIREMON team member throughout the Great Plains region in 2009, I am excited to step into a leadership role, piloting a new site in the Athens District of Wayne National Forest. In addition to the many challenges and opportunities that will be presented throughout the season, I am interested in learning more about the ecology of Southeast Ohio and continuing to expand my understanding of the effects of fire on various ecosystems.
Born and mostly-raised in Colorado, my search for ever intriguing landscapes and passion for learning about new cultures has taken me on many adventures locally and abroad. I focused my studies in Anthropology at Metro State College of Denver and have found the SCA to be a great organization in which I can combine my admiration of the natural world with my enthusiasm for sustainable community development. When I’m not counting trees in the forest, you can find me exploring, dancing, climbing, or just hanging out on my porch couch.
