Lakewood, Wisconsin, USA

I was born in Pennsylvania, and I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1996 with a B.S. in Natural Resource Ecology and Management. Since 2002, I have worked for the Forest Service as the Biological Science Technician on the Lakewood-Laona Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in northern WI. My duties involve field and office work in support of the District's wildlife, botany, and fisheries programs, and I place an emphasis on native plants, native pollinators, and conservation education. My hobbies include native plant landscaping / restoration, photography, writing, and outdoor activities.
