Biography

I grew up in rural upstate New York and received a B.S. in Wildlife Science from Paul Smith's College in the Adirondack Mountains. During my undergraduate years, I gained field experience banding raptors, collecting black bear genetic samples, rehabilitating primates, and other work in various ecosystems. After graduating, I worked for four years in the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts on the desert bighorn management program at California Department of Fish and Wildlife. This experience led to my M.S. research focused on the effects of human recreation on desert bighorn habitat use, movement, behavior, and population demographics in Southwest Colorado. In my free time, I enjoy backpacking, canoeing, horseback riding, and Nordic skiing.
