About Me

I am a conservation scientist currently working with the Old-Growth Forest Network to recognize and protect remaining old-growth forest across the United States.

If you are interested in helping us scout old-growth forests in your area, please look into serving as one of our county coordinators here.

If you would like to nominate an area to join our network of protected forests, submit your nomination here.

I conduct research in the field of environmental psychology and like to take interdisciplinary, integrative approaches to addressing environmental issues. My research generally examines how concepts such as place attachment, identity, destination marketing, environmental education, and environmental discourse shape conservation goals. In addition to research, I am interested in many forms of science communication- from illustrations, to story, and even board games!
