LET'S CONSERVE OUR NATURAL WORLD TOGETHER THROUGH ACTION, ADVENTURE, AND EDUCATION
I love the outdoors and have strong skills in plant, animal, and vegetation community identification, as well as in science communication and community science. I have been doing research, conducting outreach, and mentoring others for almost 20 years in various academia, government, environmental organization, and volunteer positions, particularly in the field of pollination and pollinators. I have my BSc (2004), MSc (2007) and have nearly completed my PhD (expected June 2021).
I encourage and promote the protection of pollinators and their habitats, including the value of native plants. My main expertise is in bumble bee identification and surveys in Eastern Canada. I also enjoy educating others, whether they be Girl Guides working on a badge, farmers learning new management practices, or gardeners learning about native plants. My objectives are to become a stronger ecologist, expanding on my skills and using them to make a positive impact in our increasingly impacted world.
