Kirsten is a Montreal native but has lived and worked across Canada from Vancouver Island, BC to Machias Seal Island, NB. She joined CMN in September 2020 to support Murray Humphries, whom she met during her Bachelor’s degree in wildlife biology at McGill, in his position as co-research Director. Kirsten holds a Master’s of Science from the University of New Brunswick and has experience in ecological research as well as project management and nonprofit administration. She is motivated to acquire new skills, whether they be in the field, the lab, or at a desk. She is excited to learn from, and hopefully contribute to, the collective wealth of knowledge within the CMN.
