Biography: I began my wildlife research experience working with native fish of the Southwest. From then on, I have switched my interest and focus from human biology to wildlife and conservation. My position with Environment for the Americas has allowed for me to conduct and participate in several projects involving migratory bird species, specifically shorebirds. The majority of my work with Environment for the Americas includes an aspect of environmental education which is also another passion of mine!
