What brought you to Metroparks?
You have to move where the job opportunities are, and I’m glad I did. It’s a great job because Metroparks allows me to do what I love (GIS) while protecting what I love (nature).

Your favorite park visited?
Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. It was a great week of camping and I got to explore miles of lava tubes!
