Personal Summary

I am passionate about conservation and wish to expand my experiences in the working field. I wish to apply what I've learned in my Bachelors degree and put it into real life terms. I am detailed oriented, hard working, and flexible. I am capable of working independently and as part of a group.

I have multiple years of animal experience; both with exotic and domestic animals. I want to work in the field of conservation as a career, that has been my personal goal for as long as I can remember. I only wish to help preserve habitats and species that are threatened, whether it be through prescribed burns, habitat alteration, or even clerical work.

As long as I am able to say I am one of those who choose to fight the uphill battle that is conservation, I will consider myself lucky.
