Originally from Bozeman, Eliza spent her early life exploring the mountains and rivers of southwest Montana. For college she traveled to Upstate New York where she earned her B.A. in environmental studies and sociology from St. Lawrence University. In her pursuit to find her place in the environmental world, Eliza has held a variety of positions including acting as a wilderness ranger in the Beartooth Mountains, tending to willows in a native plant nursery, teaching at the Montana Natural History Center, and optimizing bird nesting box placement as a GIS technician. Most recently, Eliza worked on a restoration crew with the Utah Conservation Corps where she participated in the removal of invasive woody species on the Colorado River. She is excited to return to Montana to be a member of Big Sky Watershed Corps serving with the Wildlife Conservation Society. While not at work Eliza can be exploring the mountains by foot and ski, learning to fish, and attempting to make bread that does not have the density of a brick.
