Since 2006, I have been a college professor, teaching my students about the world in which they live. Many of the most rewarding interactions I have had relate to my interacting with people outside of the university. Now, through For the Birds and the Bees Ecological Consulting, I am able to spend more time expanding the range and diversity of people with whom I work.
In the Charlotte area, I have taught courses, given seminars, and led workshops for:
- UNC-Charlotte, Certificate Program in Native Plant Studies
- Central Carolinas Master Naturalist Program
- Mecklenburg County Extension Master Gardeners Program
- Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK) Habitat Stewards
- Wing Haven Gardens
- Audubon Society
- Southern Spring Home and Garden Show
- Central Academy of Technology and Arts
- Project Scientist Academy
- City of Charlotte Landscaping Team
- Shepherd Center of Charlotte
- Piedmont Airlines Retiree Association
- Several local garden clubs
Additionally, I have given technical presentations to professional organizations such as the Ecological Society of America, the American Mammalogical Society, the Association of Southeastern Biologists, and the North Carolina Academy of Sciences.
