WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?
I am an avid trail runner (just getting into ultra running) and love getting out there on the hills in the wilderness. I get to see some really special and beautiful places on my journeys. When there is actually snow in California, I am also a big skier and snowboarder. When I am not doing either of these things, I also dabble in home brewing and enjoy my brew arguably more than should be healthy. It balances out with all the running, so it’s all good, right?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF FOOD?
FOOD IS FOR THE WEAK!!
WOULD YOU RATHER DRIVE A CAR, RIDE A BIKE OR RIDE A HORSE?
None! I would rather run!
TELL US YOUR JOURNEY AND THE STEPS YOU TOOK TO CHOOSE YOUR CURRENT CAREER.
I was always into science and quickly found I was able to more easily grasp things that I could see and touch. I naturally gravitated to wildlife biology. I was extremely lucky upon college graduation and received a call from (then) Jones & Stokes out of the blue over a year after I had applied for a position. From there, I migrated to North State Resources for a while and finally landed at LSA as a biologist, where I have been since 2002.
