I am currently an Assistant Professor with the Masters of Environmental Management Program at Western State Colorado University. I teach a variety of courses from Science of Environmental Management to Integrative Skills for Land Management. I am also the coordinator for the Integrative Land Management MS program. My husband and I recently moved from Silverton, CO and, before that, Fairbanks, AK.
I recently graduated from University of Alaska, Fairbanks with a PhD in Human Ecology. My husband and I enjoyed the adventure of living in the Great North in a cozy dry cabin. We enjoyed the northern lights, ski and backpacking trips and the wilderness that surrounded us. We're happy to be home, though! I am a 5th generation Coloradoan and for the last seven years I have worked primarily with ranching and recreation-based communities in the West. I understand the complex stressors and challenges of this region and am interested in helping its communities adapt and thrive in a changing climate.
