I grew up in Stevens Point and attended UWSP. I liked the outdoors, so studying natural resources was an obvious choice and forestry was the best fit. I graduated with a degree in Forest Management and Urban Forestry which benefits my work with a diversity of landowners. My career has taken me all over the U.S. as a forester, wildfire fighter, tree climber, landscaper, and for the last 27 years, a DNR forester. I’m lucky I’ve always enjoyed my career. I enjoy spending time with family and anything outdoors.

What I like about Portage County: It is home to me – the people, the farms, and the landscape.
