I currently reside in Mt Angel with my fiancé and menagerie of pets! I grew up in the Portland area and attended OSU where I obtained my B.S. in biology. I’ve worked in the special testing unit at the OSU Seed laboratory and in sales with Wild Birds Unlimited. Seeds have been an unintentional trend in my work pursuits! I am passionate about conservation and sustainability in its many facets. I hope to gain more experience in education and outreach to inspire the community about the importance of the environment and our obligation to protect it.
