Miriam grew up in Manitowoc County but moved to Sheboygan in 2021. She has had a passion for nature since childhood.
In 2016, Miriam started college at Concordia University Wisconsin. Getting a degree in biology, she originally planned to go to pharmacy school. Her second year of college she decided to change her career to a conservation orientated path. In 2020, she graduated with her biology degree. Then in 2021 Miriam worked a six-month internship with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. There she gained experience in assessing land for conservation practices. Since May of 2022, she has been working as a land steward for the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. Through this position Miriam has worked hands on in the field doing various land management and conservation work. She has also gained knowledge in various plant identification from being out in the field.
Miriam is excited to use her knowledge of the conservation field at Glacial Lakes. There is always more to learn about in this field, and she is eager to learn as much as possible!
Being outside is obviously a great passion for Miriam. She loves to hike and kayak. In addition to outdoor activities, she enjoys reading, baking, jigsaw puzzles, and hanging out in coffee shops.
