I have a Bachelor's in zoology from OSU.

Are you employed outside of your CWC volunteer position?
You can find me making your favorite drink at Starbucks!

What is your favorite part about volunteering at CWC?
I love coming across a species I haven't worked with before, because it means I get to learn about them. I also love seeing the journey of our patients, from arrival to release.

Do you have a favorite or most memorable patient (past or present)?
I loved seeing our most recent bobcat patient grow so much. I'm also generally fond of kestrels.

What is something that your shift may not know about you?
For all the meat and fish we deal with on a consistent basis, my shift may not know that I've been a vegetarian for over a decade.

No book right now. I've been busy playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

What music is in your car right now?
The Ramones and Nirvana.

Where are you from?
Born and raised in Olympia, WA! I moved to Oregon when I started OS in 2012.
