I am an avid birder, naturalist, and amateur photographer based in the Boston, MA area.

Graduated with BS in Biology at University of Massachusetts Boston, May 2020.

My primary interest is in birds and their conservation, and it is my ambition to work with birds in the field in some capacity.

I have worked as a Shorebird Intern for Mass Audubon's Coastal Waterbird Program in 2016, working with Piping Plovers and American Oystercatchers on Chatham's South Beach, and have participated in many avian conservation initiatives, including window strike surveys, breeding bird monitoring, and bird banding.
Until March 2021, I led monthly bird walks at Mass Audubon's Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont, MA.

I am currently working (April-June 2021) for Mississippi State University doing surveys for Black Rail in the coastal salt marshes of MS and AL.
