Before entering Academia as a faculty member, I gained invaluable experience while working for various types of organizations. I have spent time as a wildlife rehabilitator, kennel caretaker, zookeeper, and veterinarian's assistant. From a wildlife perspective, I have spent time as a technician working with timber rattlesnakes, ruffed grouse, white-tailed deer, raccoons, and other species of wildlife.
