I am a Public Engagement Specialist with the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas and I organize community programs, programs by request and interpretive communications like signs and brochures. I'm excited to be back in Fort Collins again after being gone for 15 years. My favorite things to talk about are conservation issues, conservation research and raptors!! The black blur in the profile photo is my cattle dog. She never stops moving!
In my career as a journalist, my most enjoyable work has involved the natural world. I became a Master Naturalist in 2017 and am delighted to continue learning about the local ecology and introducing others to its wonders. I also worked for twenty years as a writer-in-residence in Missouri schools, leading creative writing workshops. My degrees are in journalism and French.
