NCC: What is your position at NCC?

MW: Acting natural area manager for the southeast region of Alberta.

NCC: What is your area of work?  

MW: Conservation.

NCC: Why did you join the NCC team?  

MW: NCC offers the perfect place between conservation management, research and engagement. I have always wanted to work with landowners to help protect our beautiful native prairie.

NCC: When did you start with NCC?

MW: I started in January 2020.

NCC: What is your educational background?

MW: I have a BSc in environmental sciences and am completing my MSc in ecology now. I also have two diplomas in renewable resource management and environmental reclamation.

NCC: What is your previous experience?

MW: My experience is mostly working within the Prairie and Cypress Hills. I have worked as a researcher on migratory birds, riparian health and species

at risk, including burrowing owl, which my master's thesis focuses on.

NCC: What are your hobbies when you’re not working for NCC?

MW: I love to be outside with my dog, Pretzel, and inside doing aerial acrobatics (hanging much too high off the ground with nothing but a silk to hold on to!).

NCC: Do you have a favourite species?

MW: I am a tad partial to burrowing owls..hah! But I also absolutely adore bats.

NCC: Describe a typical day at work.

MW: So far a day on the job for me is a lot of learning and asking questions, but I cannot wait to get my boots dirty during field season.
