About Me:

I conduct surveys for threatened and endangered mammals throughout the state of Illinois. I am also the collection manager for the INHS Mammal Collection. In my spare time, I identify bats that are submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health for rabies testing. I also am active in outreach activities, teaching students and the general public about Illinois mammals, especially bats.
