WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB?
I like all of the variety my job offers. The work involves synthesizing information across various disciplines and working with a lot of different people. I’m always learning something new.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?
I love hiking, birding, yoga/Pilates, and playing at the beach with my 4-year-old son. I also enjoy vegetable and flower gardening, cooking, and reading when I have a few extra moments.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT?
I have many, but am most drawn to the east side of the Sierra. I try to get over there at least a couple of times a year. (Photo is at Doran Beach in Sonoma County.)
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?
My first job was working with my aunt and uncle at their business. I was in high school and had just completed an accounting course. My aunt hired me to help with monthly summaries and payroll.
IF YOU WEREN’T A BIOLOGIST, WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
I would probably teach at an outdoor school. I was a teaching assistant for a whitewater kayaking class in college. I would probably do something along those lines, but I’m happy to be a biologist.
