I am a graduate of the University of Toronto where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology, and of St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Canada, where I attained my qualification as a Registered Veterinary Technician. I have always loved animals, but have held a special place in my heart for bats. I have been lucky enough to travel to various places in the United States, Central and South America, Africa, the Caribbean, and the UK to help participate in bat surveys and conservation. By chance, I became involved in Proyecto CUBABAT in 2012 where, with the support of Animal Experience International, I help organize expeditions to Cuba to help provide funding for field equipment. In the summers of 2014-2016, I acted as Chiroptologist for Operation Wallacea on the Island of Dominica. I will be joining Opwall again for their expedition to Indonesia 2017. I have also assisted in a PhD project out of the University of Western Ontario which involved radio tracking silver-haired bats, Lasionycteris noctivagans.
