Jen joined Lincoln SWCD in 2018 as a Biological Surveyor in the Mid Coast Monitoring Project. She got her BS in Ecology from The Evergreen State College in 2011 and an MS in Marine Resource Management from Oregon State University in 2017. Jen is originally from Pennsylvania, but has been living and working around the West Coast since 2006. A lover of the outdoors, she spends every possible moment outside (especially when the sun is out) and has a great appetite for learning about the diverse environments of the Pacific Northwest. In her free time Jen enjoys backpacking in the mountains, hiking, camping, bird watching, and playing with her Australian Shepherd, Tahoma. She lives in Waldport with her husband Evan, their dog, 14 chickens, 3 dart frogs, 500+ houseplants, and vegetable garden.
