Audrey combines her passions for continuous learning and the complexities of human dimensions of natural resources to bring a curious, creative, and empathetic perspective to CDR’s facilitation and dispute resolution strategies. Audrey completed a Masters of Environmental Leadership (M.S.) from Colorado State University’s Conservation Leadership Through Learning (CLTL) program and earned a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition Science from the University of Georgia (go dawgs!). During graduate school, Audrey worked as the Communications Coordinator for CSU’s Center for Collaborative Conservation. Prior to moving to Colorado, Audrey coordinated and led an environmental education and Native stewardship program (Alaskan Youth Stewards) and assisted in research on Alaska Native cultural significance of cedar and policy in rural southeast Alaska. Audrey is especially interested in biocultural conservation, advocacy of Native and Indigenous resources/land rights, and learning about the ways culture and language influence perceptions of nature.
In her free time, you can find Audrey exploring Colorado’s mountains, cuddling with her cat Canyon deep in a good book, doing yoga, or salsa dancing!
