Sheena grew up just outside of Washington D.C. and has been passionate about nature and wildlife ever since she was young. Her interest in birds first began when she took an ornithology course in her undergraduate career. Sheena got started working with birds when she began volunteering at a nature center where she assisted in the husbandry and upkeep of six captive non-releasable raptors. From there, she went on to accept an internship working on the Chesapeake Bay bird banding osprey and monitoring wood duck nest boxes for a nationally recognized and ongoing wildlife conservation project. Sheena got into the field of avian wildlife rehabilitation at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science where she rehabbed raptors, songbirds, and waterfowl. She is happy to be a part of Teton Raptor Center and be able to specialize on raptor rehabilitation.
Favorite Raptor: Barred Owl (Strix varia)
