Concentration: Ecological Restoration
Advisor: Michael Andreu
I am a distance learning student, currently in Miami, Fl. After graduating from New College of Florida, I spent 12 years as a project manager for a private contractor, working in and around the Everglades on a variety of vegetation restoration projects. I have worked for the past 2 years for Broward County Parks and Rec, heading their in-house vegetation management/invasion plant eradication team. As someone who grew up exploring the great Florida outdoors, I find no greater satisfaction than reclaiming invaded ecosystems and helping return them to their uniquely Floridian states. My research focuses on urban invasive plant management and finding treatment solutions for as of yet untreatable/hard to kill plants.
