My focus is on endangered species conservation and recovery, primarily Mexican wolf and other species within the Southwest. I work closely with Native American Tribes throughout the Southwest focusing on Traditional Ecological Knowledge.


I have guest lectured for Natural Resources Policy & Law and Wildlife Conservation. I have provided Tribal Relations, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, and Endangered Species Act educational presentations for the Fish & Wildlife Service.
