PERSONAL STATEMENT

My past experience includes working for the New York Botanical Garden herbarium (14 years) and the University of Arizona herbarium (2 years) in collections management. In 2004-2005, I worked for Desert Botanical Garden collecting seed throughout Arizona for the multi-partner Seeds of Success project.  In 2015 I returned to Desert Botanical Garden as Collections Manager to carry out the expansion and reorganization of the herbarium as well as to oversee the daily functioning of it.
