She has previously worked on non-lethal beaver mitigation, grass land bird research, small mammal trapping and has even prepared zoological specimens for museums. While on a solo cross country road trip with her trusty dog Ginger she fell in love with the Tetons and has never looked back.

She is a self admitted "bird nerd" who is rarely far from her binoculars and bird guide.
