Alise is a Washington local who graduated with a BSc in Environmental Science and a minor in Spanish from Western Washington University. The majority of the credits for her minor were earned during an exchange year at the Universidad de Almería located in southern Spain.
Prior to coming to our center, Alise has enjoyed work as an assistant in dog and cat medicine, an interpretive naturalist for Deception Pass State Park through Americorps, and completed several wildlife rehabilitation internships and apprenticeships in both Texas and Belize.
Alise is currently working toward her master’s degree in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation through the University of Bristol. She completed her coursework on campus in the UK at the Bristol Veterinary School and at the Bristol Zoo. Now she is working on her thesis which will look at how intake factors including species, age and presenting problem predict survival up until release at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Costa Rica.
