Nature Photographer and Education Interpreter
Originally a Minnesota farmer’s daughter, my rural roots inspired my interest in nature and conservation. For over twenty years, I have volunteered in education about the natural world: interpreting and teaching classes as a docent at Brookfield Zoo and volunteering as an educator and raptor handler for Willowbrook Wildlife Center.
After completing my degree in photography, I began exhibiting my images in galleries and printing my photographs for purchase. In 2012, I began a photography project documenting Illinois prairie restoration at Nachusa Grasslands. Now, years later, I am one of Nachusa’s photographers, and I regularly volunteer as a steward, to restore agricultural fields back to prairie.
