I knew I was a nature lover from a young age, participating in every school environmental club or green team event. In college, I discovered the many ways to enjoy being outdoors from dendrology course work to white water rafting and winter camping. My passion for helping others was also born, working with volunteer clubs that partnered with Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life. Bouncing to an AmeriCorps stint at a Soil and Water Conservation District in the Pacific Northwest, I learned about community organizing and building relationships.

Cornell became my home away from home after moving to the Ithaca area. I found my home in the School of Industrial and Labor Relations for 11 years and built wonderful relationships with colleagues there. Once our family expanded we decided it would be beneficial for me to stay at home for a few years. Luckily enough the Sciencenter became my home as my next career stage, which provided the foundation and expertise to begin my work with the Membership team at the Lab of Ornithology. I am thrilled to be here and hope it will be another long journey on my path in life.

From a small seed a mighty trunk will grow. ~Aeschylus
I love being out in nature, forests preferably, so this quote seems fitting for what I feel everyone can contribute in this world. We are all small seeds and with the right nurturing, we can all grow to be mighty trunks to influence the world with the skills we have been given and evolved!
