Bio

About me: I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin and studied Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time I enjoy hiking and spending time with my family. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors and spending time at the family cabin up north engrained my love of the natural world.

What I like about southern Wisconsin forests: I truly appreciate the many challenges our forests face in southern Wisconsin.

Bio

I grew up in Sun Prairie and studied Urban Forestry at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and golfing. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors and growing up, I had an appreciation for forests and now understand first-hand the wide array of services a healthy forest provides.

What I like about Southeast Wisconsin: The scattered forests in a more urban environment is an exciting challenge for me. It is fulfilling for me to help landowners with invasive species and forest health issues turn their properties into a thriving forest.
