Through my work for the Province of BC as a freshwater biologist, I have experienced first hand, the beauty and ‘pristineness’ of the Upper Skagit River and am stunned by the health of the river.

When asked to support the Commission in 2020, I was happy to accept and now help their work to protect and preserve the Upper Skagit Watershed. When not doing so, I continue to spend my time hiking up and down steep streams searching for Coastal Tailed Frogs, mucking around in wetlands looking for Oregon Spotted Frogs, and floating down rivers counting steelhead trout!
