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!

This photo is of me really getting into my work on the natural areas! I was the Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Natural Areas Department from 1994--2019. I trained Master Naturalists, delivered Certified Interpretive Guide training, managed, wrote, and edited interpretive signs and brochures, and I even got out to lead some field trips! In retirement I volunteer with the Natural Areas Department doing a few programs and helping with the bird surveys. Yes, I am still having fun!
