I am the Project Manager for Save The River. I have taught invasive species sections of undergraduate coursework as an adjunct professor and field identification for over five years. I was the WNY PRISM Education and Outreach Assistant in 2015 and assisted with invasive species management including herbicide application, identification, and early detection/rapid response. From 2015-2017 I managed terrestrial and aquatic invasive species for central Region State Parks and wrote the Phragmites management plan for Sandy Island Beach State Park. I am an iMap Invasive training facilitator, have led interpretive ID hikes and paddles, and invasive species community stewardship projects. I am also a Project Wet and Aquatic Wild trainer, and incorporate New York State Science Learning Standards and Common Core Learning Standards into classroom and educator trainings.
