I grew up on the foothills of Boulder, and graduated from Colorado College where I conducted undergraduate research in the parasite-mediated sexual selection of collared lizards. Since graduation I have worked for the BLM, a private environmental consulting company, and a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center. I am greatly interested in applied ecology and conservation biology, especially in the management and protection of threatened and endangered species and their habitat. I will be pursuing a Plan B Masterâ??s with Barry Noon as my mentor.
