I have an ongoing fascination with long-term saguaro demographic trends, and this interest seems to take up all my free time! I have done two long-term studies at Saguaro National Park, which draw upon historic data from the past 60 years. I have also had the pleasure of developing an updated and scientifically accurate slide show about saguaro biology and ecology for park visitors. I am currently working at Harris Environmental Group, Inc., a consulting firm that produces environmental compliance documents to meet federal, state and local environmental protection laws.
My job is never dull, and I get to chase various endangered species all over the Southwest! I wake up everyday looking forward to my work.
I have been able to "ride on the coattails" of Prescott College's far-reaching reputation for producing outstanding field biologists. Having a degree from Prescott College literally paves the way for a great career by exposing students to applied research/management and providing opportunities to make a variety of pre-graduation employment contacts.
Advice for Students: Find the people you admire in your field and work with them!
