Environmental Scientist for the California State Parks based out of Malibu Creek. My focus is on restoring landscapes degraded by illegal cannabis growing operations on State lands throughout southern California. Previously, I worked in the private sector performing biological surveys in various biomes from the deserts of Palmdale to the Los Angeles Coast and throughout the Santa Monica Mountains and preparing reports pursuant to CEQA. Prior to that, I worked for the California State Parks on the coast in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties performing field surveys for Western Snowy Plovers and California Least Terns, and restoring State lands by removal of non native plants and installation and maintenance of native plants. Check out the natives by the boardwalk at Carpinteria State Beach!

B.S. in biology with a focus on ecology and biodiversity and a minor in ecological restoration from beautiful Humboldt State University!
