I grew up in the driftless region of Wisconsin and received a BS in Wildlife Ecology and Management from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. After graduating, I spent 5.5 years working for various state wildlife agencies and universities on many large game research studies and in population management roles. These have included neonate capture and survival monitoring for bighorn sheep, elk, mule deer and white-tailed deer, as well as survival monitoring using GPS-collared adult bighorn sheep, moose, elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, and pronghorn. I have worked for predation studies using GPS-collared mountain lions and Mexican grey wolves to investigate kill sites. For my M.S. research, I will be investigating pronghorn habitat selection and movement in southwestern New Mexico.
