I received a B.S. in Environmental Science from UC Berkeley in 2013, where I conducted a thesis on methods of restoration to support rare and endangered plants in the sand dunes at Point Reyes National Seashore. I continued to work on plant monitoring and restoration at the park for a couple more seasons after graduating before switching gears to agroecology. I volunteered in the Kremen lab, took a Permaculture Design course, and then rejoined as lab manager in Spring 2015. I spend much of my time wandering around looking for plants and bees, thinking about food systems and food, playing with my puppy, and crocheting.
