After graduating from the Environmental Design program, I worked as an intern with Boulder County. There I developed a visitor use study for the Department of Open Space, studying e-bike use, commuter patterns, and recreation conflict. After my contract with Boulder County, I took a position with the Southwest Conservation Corps in Durango working as a Wildland Firefighter with the United States Forest Service. There I gained knowledge and an understanding of wildland fire and public land conservation. I am now enrolled in a Master's program at Western Colorado University in Gunnison studying Public Land Management. I am also a Fellow with the Center of Public Lands working on a project with the United States Forest Service in Ouray, CO. This project entails a visitor use assessment of the Blue Lakes - Mt. Sneffels Wilderness as well as the High Alpine OHV routes that populate the area.
