Originally a Boise native, I graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Environmental Science with minors in French and Wildlife Resources and worked extensively with the UI Sustainability Center. Since then, I have worked across the country assisting on various research projects ranging from long-term effects of timber harvest on avian biodiversity to avian dusk chorus community dynamics to endangered species monitoring. Recently, I completed a Conservation Program Fellowship with the National Wildlife Refuge Association, and then served as Midway Atoll NWR's Invasive Plant Control Specialist as an AmeriCorps member through Kupu's Conservation Leadership Development Program. Currently, I am a graduate student at Northern Illinois University studying the ecological impacts of introduced house mice on a remote subtropical atoll through the support of a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. On the side, I serve as a Board Director with the Friends of Midway Atoll NWR and provide French translations for the Wilson Journal of Ornithology.
