I graduated from State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in 2014 with a B.S. in Conservation Biology. Since then I have worked for the U.S. Forest  Service, National Park Service and some non-profit conservation based organizations. I have a background mostly in wildland fire, from fire suppression crews to fire-use modules. Most recently I worked at North Cascades National Park as a Fire Effects Monitor. As a crew we studied the effects of different fuels treatments (thinning, broadcast burns, pile burns, wildfires, etc.) on National Park Service lands throughout Washington State. With Dr. Kane I will be studying the fire effects from the Carr Fire on Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.  We will be looking at areas that received different fuel treatments and how the fire burned through those areas.
