Forest Biodiversity Research Network Coordinator
My love for forests and connection to the natural environment were fostered growing up in Paradise, California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, but I have called Oregon home for the last decade. My academic background is rooted in Public Policy and International Studies, where I focused on sustainable development and environmental health. With a working background in environmental education communications and program coordination, my passion for science and conservation is at the core of it all, encompassing landscapes, sustainable food systems, wildlife and the wellbeing of the planet. Along with my hound dog Buckley, I love to be outdoors- usually surfing on the Oregon Coast, backpacking, trail running, or fly fishing.
