Raised on a midwest farm, I have lived in and explored the Rockies of Colorado, Montana, and New Mexico for over 30 years. I have worked for the U.S. Forest Service and an archaeological research center and served on the Boards of the Fort Collins Audubon Society and the Gardens on Spring Creek.
Master Naturalist since 2010, my career was in marine biology, genetics and DNA research. In retirement I especially like leading nature programs highlighting the beauty and biodiversity of the City’s natural areas.
