This is my second season as the Nederland Mining Museum Coordinator. Last season was my first work experience in a museum. I enjoyed learning and performing the various aspects of interpretation for museum visitors and program participants. I especially benefitted in my rookie year from the expertise and guidance of various Parks and Open Space personnel and volunteers. I was born in New York City and raised in northern New Jersey in a family of seven with four sisters and two brothers.

My interest in historic mining began growing up in Colorado seeing the remnants of mines dot the mountain sides. This interest turned professional in Utah as a plant ecologist surveying for rare plants in the path of oil shale development and working with geologists, hydrologists and engineers surveying and designing reclamation plans for abandoned coal and hard rock mines and reviewing permits for new underground coal mine development.
