I am a passionate and innovative Conservation Biologist. My interest in the environment started when I was young – spending hours outside exploring and watching wildlife films. My work focuses on environmental and wildlife crimes and governance, and has brought me to Alaska, Kenya, Tanzania, Thailand, and South Africa. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management (Goucher College) and a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology (University of Cape Town). When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and cycling. I spent the last six months backpacking through Southeast Asia and biking along the California coast with my dog.
