I am an aquatic ecologist and Outreach Specialist in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. I am particularly interested in aquatic invasive species prevention, detection, and management; volunteer monitoring of Michigan's streams and lakes (citizen science); science communication, outreach, and engagement; and natural resources leadership development.
As a Senior Outreach Specialist, the majority of my work is focused on engaging with individuals and organizations to promote understanding and stewardship of aquatic ecosystems. Key partners in these efforts include Michigan State University Extension, Michigan Lakes and Streams Association, Inc., and the Michigan Departments of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE); Natural Resources (DNR); and Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD).
