Grad Class of 1998
I graduated from the Bachelor of Natural Resource Science program in 1998, and with CO-OP work experience, I have a background in wildlife biology, silviculture, forestry engineering. Since graduating, I have worked for Tolko Industries, supervising various silviculture contracts and conducting pre- and post-harvest surveys. More recently, I was a field assistant on a wolverine research project with the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks, Wildlife Branch in Victoria, and the British Columbia Conservation Foundation in Prince George. The majority of time on this project was spent locating radio-tagged animals, snow tracking and assessing habitats used by wolverines in the Omineca Mountains, north of Mackenzie. Currently, I am starting my Masters degree at the University of Victoria, studying badger habitat use and movements in the Thompson region. I am locating unknown and radio-tagged badgers, monitoring burrows and animal movements to gain a better understanding of these rare grassland carnivores. This is in conjunction with the Thompson/Okanagan Badger Project and Artemis Wildlife Consultants, and my advisor, Dr. Karl Larsen at the University-College of the Cariboo.
