I am a land conservation professional, with the wildlife management background to bring to the land owners seeking conservation easements on their property.
I work diligently with landowners across the Lowcountry to make sure their property is preserved in perpetuity while meeting forestry, wildlife and agricultural needs. I spent my undergraduate time at the University of Tennessee working for the US Forest Service managing natural resources across the Cherokee National Forest. I then went on to pursue a Master of Science degree, again with the US Forest Service, developing a habitat suitability index for the Southern Appalachian Brook Trout. I spent countless days monitoring populations and their habitat suitability followed by even more hours of statistical analysis to prove it scientifically.
I then went on to work for a private hunting plantation in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, Chelsea Plantation, maintaining upland habitat for wild game birds. I initiated many management tactics in order to improve the overall hunting experience while leading the plantation owners on hunts for a variety of species. It was here that I really rounded off my knowledge of the landscape having worked for the federal government, state government and now the private sector. I was now ready to take the daunting task of working for a non-profit organization helping landowners preserve their property. It is here that I finally fell into my niche and was right at home!
