Ecology Coordinator and Instructor
James Madison University
After graduating from Longwood College I worked for two years for the Conservation Management Institute as an archeologist conducting phase 1 surveys at Fort Pickett, Va. From there I entered a Masters program in Applied Ecology and Conservation Biology at Frostburg State University. After one year, I transferred to James Madison University where I completed my MS degree studying salamander ecology and conservation. Since that time I have been the Ecology Coordinator and Instructor at JMU. Having been in higher education for the last half of my life, I can say without a doubt that there is something incredibly special about the Longwood Anthropology department. I have benefited beyond measure from the relationships and experiences that I have gained from having been a part of that program.
