I received a Ph.D. in agronomy from the University of Maryland in 1986. I have worked in wetland restoration for USDA NRCS, private companies, and for St. Johns River Water Management District in Florida. I currently am the research coordinator for the Great Lakes Research and Education Center, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

It made me more aware of how fortunate Americans are with what they have in material wealth, educational opportunities, and having many natural resources. It helped me to decide to pursue my education in natural resources and stay involved with natural resource protection.
