Working for BiodiversityWorks as the Shorebird Conservation Coordinator and as a Wildlife Biologist is my dream job. My passion for shorebirds, my wildlife degree from the University of New Hampshire, and practical field research experience focusing on endangered and understudied avian species in Massachusetts, Alaska, and Florida all prepared me for this position. Whether I am searching for cryptic shorebird nests, conducting surveys of tern or skimmer colonies, radio tracking turtles, snakes, or bats, or teaching interns and volunteers field skills, I believe in the necessity and importance of the work we do to help protect the island’s biodiversity for future generations. I grew up coming to the island each summer, but my parents moved here full-time when I was in college. I’m happy to call the island my home.
