Biography: My origins root back to Colombia and Peru. The transition to Oregon from South America instilled my appreciation for the natural world and triggered my desire to pursue a career in the protection of Earth’s wildlife and resources.
I have experience in Latino outreach, environmental education, raptor rehabilitation, and avian fieldwork and research. I am currently seeking a Master’s in Wildlife Science through the Seabird Oceanography Lab. I use satellite transmitters to study the foraging behaviors and habitat preference of common murres (Uria aalge) off Oregon during the breeding and non-breeding season.
