I began working for the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve the spring of 2004. I have enjoyed the many different programs I have worked on over the years for the Reserve to help folks expand their knowledge of Kachemak Bay and its workings. I also love to illustrate and have helped make a variety of guides that enhance science communication in our area. This job accommodates my love of science, art, and teaching.

I have training as a Natural Science Illustrator and love spending time outdoors poking around. My husband and two daughters and I often spend our free time fishing, hiking, or skiing in Bristol Bay and the Wrangell Mountains as well as Homer.
