Lizzy grew up in central Maryland and regularly spent many hours in nature. Whether it was kayaking, hiking, or doctoring her stuffed animals through the healing powers of clover and dandelions, she loved it all. In 2022, she earned a B.S. in Ecology from Susquehanna University in central PA. During her studies she researched the extent of coyote-wolf hybridization in the state and assisted in the management of stream, fish, and macroinvertebrate data for research purposes.
After graduating, Lizzy stayed in central PA and served Chesapeake Conservancy as a volunteer coordinator. She organized local volunteers and conservation partners for stream restoration events to install and maintain riparian tree plantings. In her free time, Lizzy indulges her creative side through many mediums, whether it be digital painting, animation, or writing. She also spends her time raising many house plants and a rambunctious young cat.
Though new to Wisconsin and the Rock River Coalition, Lizzy is ready to dive in, meet all of the volunteers and conservation partners, and contribute to the great work already in motion in the watershed.
