I earned a B.S. in Urban Forestry from UW-Stevens Point, am an ISA Certified Arborist Municipal Specialist, and have been working in the tree care industry for close to 20 years. My work experience includes private, state and municipal positions in Nevada and Wisconsin. In late-2010 I returned to my hometown of Racine, Wisconsin where I hold the position of City Forester. I am also serving my second term as Secretary on the Wisconsin Arborist Association Board of Directors.
