About Me

Most of my career has been spent as an Educator at multiple zoos and aquariums. Currently   I am based at Walt Disney World as a Research Technician. I currently focus on managing the data and volunteer Purple Martin Nest Monitoring Program. I started as a pollinator ecologist by looking at the biodiversity of pollinators and host plants in our Solar Array facility. My passion is developing programs to show tweens and teens different career options in the Natural Sciences field. I'm really interested in connecting students who were historically excluded in this field to gaining important nature skills and combatting harmful stereotypes.
