I joined Cornell Botanic Gardens as assistant arborist in 2014.  Prior to arriving in Ithaca, I worked at both The Morris Arboretum at the University of Pennsylvania and The Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore College. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Natural Science and Philosophy from Juniata College, and am currently pursuing a Master of Professional Studies in Public Garden Leadership degree at Cornell University. I am an International Society of Arboriculture certified arborist with a Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ).
