I am a conservation biologist from Massachusetts and a firm believer that everything is
connected through the ecological web of life. My path reflects my fascination with all creatures,
great and small. I have conducted field research studying the effects of mercury poisoning in marsh nesting
birds in Maine and focused my thesis work on the spatial ecology of Eastern hognose snakes on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I have assisted in published research concerning the Massachusetts state-threatened frosted elfin butterfly and the federally-endangered New England cottontail rabbit. With a personal interest in writing and
photography, I have sought to create meaningful connections between people and nature
through research, stewardship, education, and the arts. I served as the first executive director of the
Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch in Northern Michigan and have been the raptor migration biologist at the Whitefish
Point Bird Observatory since 2020.
