I’m a native of New England with a deep interest in natural history, particularly the long-distance migration of birds. For over ten years, I’ve worked as field biologist on research projects designed to assess shorebird numbers in the Arctic, and to determine causes of population declines in shorebirds. As a doctoral student, I designed and conducted field studies to track migratory shorebirds at sea in the Bay of Fundy.
In 2012, I moved to the Boston area, and was fortunate to discover Eagle Eye. I am so happy for the opportunity to be a volunteer instructor for the Learn About programs and EAGLE Club. The experience has reminded me of the infectious gravitation youth have to the natural world. Strengthening and cultivating youth interests results in a powerful exchange between instructors and students. Sharing my passion and expertise is very rewarding.
