What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?

I moved here from Georgia partially because of my love of the outdoors! I enjoy exploring the PNW by hiking, running, snowshoeing, and going on adventures. I feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place! 

Why do you work here (at the District)?

Having a job where I get to look at bugs, play outside, and work with kids is a dream come true! I love working with the public and especially youth. I enjoy creating positive experiences for young people to explore the world around them, learn about their natural resources, and build their skills and sense of curiousty.
