I joined the Salish Kootenai College faculty in 2013 and helped develop the Wildlife and Fisheries Degree Program. I enjoy teaching courses about wildlife ecology, habitats, conservation, and management.
Prior to this position, I worked for 12 years as a Wildlife Biologist for the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, 2 years as an Ecologist for the U. S. Geological Survey – National Wetlands Research Center, and several other wildlife-related jobs. My experience and research interests include wildlife habitat relationships and sensitive species conservation.
I have been married for almost 20 years and I am the mother of three boys. I enjoy spending my free time with my family and our dogs hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, and skiing.
