For as long as I can remember I have had a calling to be outdoors. There are baby pictures of me on my Dad’s charter fishing boat, I began going on hunting trips at the age of four, and every summer vacation of my childhood focused on spending time hiking through the north woods of Minnesota. These traditions had a meaningful impact in shaping the person I am today, and it is no wonder that I have dedicated my life to understanding our natural systems.
My background in ecological sciences has been a useful tool in my legal career. My practice is focused on using all that I have learned from my scientific and legal education to work with people to not only understand the importance of ecosystems, but to also understand their legal rights.
