My Wisconsin Woods Coordinator

I am pleased to be joining The Aldo Leopold Foundation as the My Wisconsin Woods Coordinator! I look forward to connecting woodland owners with valuable resources and tools to help them manage their land.

I am a Wisconsin native and grew up in the Milwaukee area. While my interest in nature started in my childhood, I realized I wanted to study how to protect it while attending college in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I was blessed to attend college in one of the best places for nature lovers—Marquette, Michigan. Here I swam in Lake Superior and hiked portions of the North Country Trail, all while learning how to use my communications skills to advocate for the land I was enjoying.

In May of 2023, I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in public relations and a minor in environmental studies. Since graduating, I completed an internship with The Nature Conservancy, and took time off to travel to Europe. In my free time I enjoy hiking, thrifting, and attending Brewers games.

I look forward to following my passion for conservation in the My Wisconsin Woods coordinator position!
