Areas of Interest: 

I grew up in the Macdonald Forest outside of Corvallis, Oregon, which nurtured my appreciation for forest and water systems from an early age.  I received my BS in Environmental Science from Western Washington University in 2012, with minors in Environmental Policy and French.  After graduation, I spent four years working in the Pacific Northwest and abroad.  I performed salmon habitat surveys, first for the US Forest Service and later for an environmental consulting firm.  I spent two years in France teaching English in French public schools, and I interned with the Oregon Association of Clean Water Agencies.  I am excited to be starting a new chapter here at Oregon State, where my graduate research will focus on optimizing artificial log jam placement within Oregon Coast Range watersheds for increased stream complexity and salmon habitat.

Personal Interests: 

food, traveling, knitting, canoeing, mushroom hunting, and cross-country skiing.
