Monica is approaching her tenth year with the ABMI and has been involved in a diverse set of initiatives over that time, giving her a strong understanding of the ABMI and our programs. Over the past several years, she has helped build partnership-based platforms, including WildTrax and the Bioacoustic Unit. She has led efforts to build relationships and raise awareness with a number of organizations spanning multiple sectors. Previously, Monica was heavily involved in coordination and work planning for both the Joint Oil Sands Monitoring program and the Ecological Monitoring Committee for the Lower Athabasca. And before that, she managed ABMI’s land access program and worked directly with land owners and the ABMI’s field crews to “get the boots on the ground.”
Monica has a love for bees and completed her MSc studying native bee diversity at the University of Alberta in 2017.
