A graduate of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in 1997, I attended College of the Atlantic and received a B.A. in Human Ecology. I began working for Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation in 2002 as the Henry Beetle Hough Intern and am now Sheriff’s Meadow’s Director of Stewardship. As the Director of Stewardship, I monitor conservation restrictions, write management plans and prescribed burn plans, monitor endangered species and conduct ecological inventories. I believe that the protection and proper management of open space, intact habitats and biodiversity are vital to our Island’s sustainability. Through the Fellowship, I attended Antioch University of New England and received a Master of Science degree in Resource Management and Conservation in 2014. I continue to work for Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation helping to provide the island community with places to enjoy nature, protecting rare species and managing lands for our future.
