Aimee completed her bachelor’s degree in Biology with a Natural Resource focus from Central Michigan University in 2016. During her undergraduate career, she spent two seasons conducting state-wide wetland vegetation inventory surveys in Michigan for the EPA Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Consortium. After receiving her bachelor’s degree, Aimee was employed as a field technician on a diverse array of wildlife research projects including studies on the resource utilization and movements of American marten, spruce grouse population trends and distribution, and snowshoe hare abundance and landscape genetics. In cooperation with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians Natural Resources Department, she will be studying large scale factors affecting snowshoe hare relatedness, with a particular focus on habitat isolation in the northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Furthermore, she will examine fine-scale patterns in seasonal snowshoe hare habitat use in the eastern Upper Peninsula using GPS radio telemetry.
