I have served on the HawkWatch board for almost two years, and appreciate the opportunity to give back to the community in this way. I believe that HawkWatch's commitment to making a difference in the natural world is essential in allowing future generations to enjoy the same beauty and wonders that we do. In addition to my role as board member, I enjoy my work in K-8 educational setting. Whether hiking, running, or skiing, the outdoors is where I am at home. Being involved with HawkWatch is a privilege that allows me to combine my passion for education and the environment, and to work alongside others who want also to make a difference.
