One of my first field jobs was surveying Cerulean Warblers at the Queen’s University Biological Station. This experience piqued my interest in birds, specifically Species at Risk, and I haven’t looked back since. After receiving a Master of Science in Biology studying habitat loss in Eastern Whip-poor-wills, I began working at Birds Canada in 2016 on swifts and swallows. Now, as the Grants Manager I support a range of Birds Canada’s important work to conserve birds. I am inspired by the talented and dedicated Birds Canada staff and supporters and do this work, because birds need our help more than ever.
