Current Job: Forest Entomologist

“After I graduated from WWC I moved to Flagstaff, AZ to pursue a Masters in forestry at Northern Arizona University. In 2004 I started my Northern Arizona University doctorate research in West Africa. One of the components of the work was using ants as indicators of land use, forest type, and as general measures of biodiversity.

In June of 2009 I interviewed for and was offered a position with the Colorado State Forest Service as the forest entomologist. My job is a healthy mix of research, academics and public outreach and education.

I am still friends with many people that I meet during my time at WWC and despite our often drastically different journeys pre and post WWC we always seem to pick up right where we left off.”
