- What conservation issue is closest to your heart?
- Animals being pushed out of their habitat.
- What are you hoping to learn from CCC?
- Have a fun time learning how to properly snowshoe, I’m looking forward to teaching things that are new to even me/things I just learned.
- Who/what inspired you to care about conservation?
- When I was in Cuba I saw dogs in conditions they will die from shortly and people walking past them with no thought. I was way too concerned for them and ever since I’ve wanted to prevent that from happening ever again.
- How do you plan to make a difference for conservation in the future?
- Teach why to hunt for the harvest rather than for the kill/sport.
