🐢 🤹 PORTLANDER ↗ ECOLOGIST ↗ COMMUNITY SCIENTIST 🤹 🐢

🌱 🌳 BACKGROUND
My childhood in the sheltered suburbs of Clackamas, OR felt somewhat detached from nature, with much of my exposure coming from TV programs! I continued to cultivate my nerdy love for science and nature while earning a B.S. in Biology at Pacific University followed by an M.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA. Since then, I've shifted gears from academic research to on-the-ground wildlife and habitat conservation, working for local nonprofits (e.g., Columbia Land Trust, Johnson Creek Watershed Council, Conservation InSight) and agencies (e.g., Metro, City of Portland, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services).

🤲 ❤️ BIG THANKS!
I started out as a major bird nerd but since 2017 have expanded my interests and ID skills to many other taxa -- plants, insects, herps, fungi, etc. -- with most of the credit going to iNaturalist community members like you!

🙌 🌎 LET'S NATURE 2GETHER!
My passions are planted at the intersection of people and nature, and I'm thrilled to creatively and cooperatively leverage iNaturalist for just that! I really enjoy brainstorming and creating innovative projects grounded in diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a second-generation Chinese American, I am motivated to help others from BIPOC and other historically underserved communities access nature in a culturally relevant and meaningful way. Please always feel free to message me to talk projects or ideas or to simply say hello!
