My love for the environment reaches back to my childhood, where I roamed the forests and farms surrounding my home in Hickory, NC. I attended UNC-Chapel Hill and received a B.Sc in Environmental Science with a minor in Biology, concentrating in ecology and natural resources.
I’ve formerly worked for the North Carolina Botanical Garden, NC Wildlife Resources Commission, and Triangle Land Conservancy. In my previous roles, I worked alongside scientists and landowners to manage land, inventory plant and animal species, and ensure the understanding of conservation agreements. I enjoy working with landowners to discover the natural wonders on their own properties. I’m excited to bring my passion for restoration and conservation to WLS.
When I’m not working, I play soccer, go hiking, or curl up with my pets and a good book.
