I am a conservation scientist for The Nature Conservancy's Wyoming chapter, based in Lander, WY. I work to conserve biodiversity and promote improved coexistence of humans and wildlife through research, outreach, and collaboration. My research interests are centered around understanding and minimizing human impacts on wildlife, including those from recreation, land use and land cover change, and climate change.
I completed a PhD and MS in Ecology at Colorado State University, focusing on the effects of recreation on wildlife, and hold a B.A. in Environmental Studies and International Studies from Colby College.
