My interest in conservation was seeded while I was growing up in Bellingham, WA in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I felt very connected to nature from hiking in forests with views of the Cascade Mountains and exploring tide pools on the coast. That interest grew when I moved to Asheville, NC to attend Warren Wilson College. The extreme biodiversity of Western North Carolina moved me to change my major from Education to Environmental Studies concentrating in Conservation Biology.
My passions include sustainable food and studying wildlife, particularly birds. I like to be active and outdoors as much as possible whether it be hiking, camping, biking, birding, or floating down a river.
I look forward to doing meaningful outdoor work with Wildcorps and exploring the Mojave Desert.
