I’ve worked for IWRC since 2010, although my actual relationship with the organization goes back to my teenage years in the 1990’s when I eagerly awaited each new issue of the Journal of Wildlife Rehabilitation growing up at Wind River Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. I studied environmental studies and anthropology at a small midwestern liberal arts college. I then proceeded to work a number of nonprofit and environmental education jobs, with a little bit of corporate experience thrown in before settling down at IWRC. I live in Eugene, Oregon with a number of domestic rescue animals and heritage breed chickens. In Spring 2013 I completed a Masters degree in Public Policy and Administration at Northwestern University. Now I spend my free time in the garden and working in fiber arts.
