Biography:

I have traveled for most of my adult career. As a wildlife biologist, sometimes the best way to learn about ecological systems is to personally experience them. I have lived and worked on coastal islands in the Gulf of Maine and on the Georgia coast, conducted research in the prairies of Montana and Minnesota, and collected data in the Grand Canyon. I have also traveled to Costa Rica, Italy, and New Zealand to experience different communities, human and otherwise.

I am excited to be a new part of the ABAC team, and I look forward to working with students, faculty, and staff here.
