She is passionate about stewardship (caring for the land) and getting more people involved in citizen science. She led the creation of Nature Groupie in 2012 to improve stewardship collaboration in New England, and to involve more people, use better technology, and empower generations of outdoor enthusiasts to volunteer for nature.

She holds an M.S. in Forest Resources from the University of Washington and a BA from Yale University.
