What I Do
I participate in tick surveillance by collecting specimens from local communities and veterinarians to contribute to statistics on pathogens and population growth. I provide lectures and interactive workshops on tick awareness and the implementation of preventative measures in your daily life. This includes educating people on the threats ticks pose, how to keep ticks off your body, pets and loved ones, and advice on keeping your yard as tick-proof as possible. In addition, I fundraise for tick-borne disease research at art, music and cultural events.
