Tori’s introduction to raptor research and conservation began with California spotted owls. Tori started with HWI as a crewmember during the 2017 fall migration season and has since worked two more seasons of migration and as a technician on many other HWI projects. Tori obtained a M.S. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in environmental management and conservation after completing her B.S. in Environmental Science. Tori’s background includes working with critically endangered, threatened, and species of concern with universities and federal, state, and non-profit organizations. Exposure to working with many organizations on various projects has provided Tori with a wealth of invaluable field skills and experience.
In her free time, Tori enjoys spending time with friends and two pet quail, wildlife photography, hiking, and camping.
