A native of West Virginia, Anna graduated from Dickinson College with honors and a B.S. in Environmental Science in 2013. After that she spent three years in the field as seasonal biotech with a variety of federal agencies in Minnesota, Virginia, Utah, and Mississippi. She has inventoried shorebirds on wilderness islands, chased beavers out of civil war forts, and run vegetation transects under hoodoos. As the restoration technician, Anna is a bit of a renaissance woman. She performs a wide variety of tasks to support the habitat restoration program, including (but not limited to): vegetation surveys, greenhouse work, small engine repair, chemical and manual invasive species control, out-planting of native species, and seed collection and cleaning. Program needs vary based on weather and season, so no two weeks are ever the same.
In her spare time Anna enjoys cooking, kayaking, backpacking, reading, and playing the guitar badly.
