I currently study possible cumulative effects on Ferruginous Hawks in the Canadian Prairies. I completed my Master of Science at the University of Regina studying Common Nighthawks, which I enjoyed greatly even though nightjars smell funny. After finishing my masters, I worked as an environmental consultant and then as an environmental educator in Saskatchewan. In 2010, I was pleased to return to Alberta and my hometown, Edmonton, to study Ferruginous Hawk ecology in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. When attempting work-life balance, I enjoy walking my dog, outdoor photography, and sleeping in a tent. You can usually find me with a cup of coffee in hand and Chaco sandals on my feet, whether in the field or in the office working on data. Some would say that I was a chocoholic. They may be right.
