The Dragonfly Guide got a great review from the National Science Teachers Association!Read the NSTA review!
I began my career 15 years ago with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, moved to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and then became a National Park Ranger at the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
In 2008, I started my own environmental science consulting business. I work with teachers, students, universities, and industry professionals to provide teacher workshops, environmental education, and curriculum and interpretive writing.
Presently, I’m in graduate school at the University of Minnesota working towards an advanced degree in Conservation Biology. Balancing graduate work and dragonfly workshops is difficult but I will do my best to set up workshop for schools and natures centers on request!
