Becca joined the GMAH team in April of 2022. She grew up in the northern suburbs of Illinois where she earned her Bachelors in Animal Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and moved to Vermont after earning a Master’s of Biology from Miami University. Her love of wildlife has taken her all around the world from South Africa to the Galapagos Islands where she has had the chance to help with field projects involving human-wildlife conflict resolution and the seed dispersal rates of Galapagos Tortoises. Before moving to Vermont Becca worked at the Wildlife Discovery Center, a nonprofit nature center in Illinois where she gained experience working with many exotic and Illinois-native species alike. In her free time, Becca enjoys spending time with her friends both human and animal, hiking, and baking.
