Personal Statement

I am interested in how community education and engagement affects natural resource management and environmental protection.
At the Desert Botanical Garden, I assist the IUCN Cactus and Succulent Plant Specialist Group (CSSG) with Red List assessment of species, membership management, and communications.
I also support the Central Arizona Conservation Alliance (CAZCA) as the invasive species management coordinator developing and executing a management plan to address non-native species in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
