I recently finished my PhD at Utah State University where I studied the ecological impacts of recreation in national parks and other protected areas. I have a BS in Ecology from Penn State and, before starting graduate school, I did a short stint as a middle and high school science teacher in Wisconsin. In 2011, I started a blog called "The Average Visitor" where I write about recreation-related topics and the research that goes on in national parks. Additionally, I take every opportunity I can to interact with local school groups in Utah and to teach children about the natural world.
