Land Stewardship Fellow
As long as I can remember I have been fascinated with the natural world. I have a particular affinity towards wildlife and have had the chance to study bat-katydid interactions in the Philippines, vocal communication of antbirds in Costa Rica, the welfare of American toads at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, and heavy metal pollution at Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. All of these experiences have endowed me with a deep appreciation for the diversity of life and have made me passionate about doing my part to ease the biodiversity loss crisis. I completed my undergraduate education at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI and recently graduated with a Master’s in Biology from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Now, through my role as a Land Stewardship Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation, I hope to deepen my personal land ethic and soak in as much knowledge as I can about best land management practices that can help me be the best steward of the land that I can be.
