Originally from a small mountain town in Southern California and formally educated in St. Paul, Minnesota, Karina lived in seven more states before arriving in Wyoming as TRC’s newest intern. Having worked as a veterinary assistant, environmental educator, and wildlife technician, she is excited to find a position that not only combines her passions but lasts a whole entire year! Last summer, Karina assisted with Glacier National Park’s Golden Eagle nest monitoring effort and can’t wait to learn more about these enormous, magnificent birds while working with the research and avian care teams at TRC. Karina enjoys several mountain sports, but is most proud of turning her friends into birders. This serves the dual purpose of increasing general appreciation for avian life and also slowing them down a little on the trail.
