What do you like about living in the Pacific Northwest?
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 opportunities for young people to explore the world around them, learn about natural resources, develop skills, and feed their sense of curiosity.
I’ve run several half marathons
I have a list journal
