Soundscapes to Landscapes (S2L) Project Coordinator

Soundscapes to Landscapes (S2L), is a collaborative multi-organization citizen science research project on which Point Blue is one of the primary partners. S2L relies on the help of citizen scientists to monitor bird diversity across Sonoma County using new acoustic monitoring technology. As Project Coordinator, I spend most of my time working with landowners to gain permission to conduct monitoring on public and private lands across the county, training and assisting volunteers in the field, coordinating the field schedule, making maps, and managing the data we collect.

I grew up in the redwoods of Northern Humboldt, and have always had a deep passion for the outdoors and conservation. While my professional background is in hospitality and administration, when I finally realized I could study the environment in a university setting, I attended Sonoma State University to receive a BA in Environmental Studies in 2018 while concurrently working in the field of environmental education. During my last semester at Sonoma State in the fall of 2018, I began working on the S2L project here at Point Blue. I’m thrilled to be working in an environment with so many individuals who are working toward science-driven conservation and climate-smart solutions that address some of the broad environmental issues we are currently facing.

When I’m not in the Petaluma office or out in the field around Sonoma County, you can find me exploring new swimming holes and backpacking trails or working at home in my garden.
