I have worked as a forest technician both in urban forest roles (ISA certified Arborist) and for the Canadian Forest Service working with invasive and native insects. I have worked on many research projects including brown spruce long-horned beetle and spruce budworm.
Currently: Forestry Instructor at the Maritime College of Forest Technology (MCFT) in Fredericton NB. I teach 5-6 courses a year including forest entomology and pathology, Urban Forestry, Dendrology, Botany, Public Speaking and Arboriculture Sciences. Each year I have approx 100 students training to be forest technologists!
Hobbies: Raising chickens!
Social Media: Incorporating more into my classes. I think social media is a great tool and they should know how to use it effectively.
