B.S. in Environmental Science, Oregon State University (2015)
Kaedra is a born and raised Oregonian and grew up exploring the outdoors. After finishing her Bachelor's degree at Oregon State University, Kaedra worked various wildlife positions from sea turtle research in Ecuador to snowy plover work with the Bureau of Land Management Coos Bay District. As a lover of water (especially the ocean) Kaedra's AmeriCorps experience with the Coos Watershed Association afforded her the invaluable exposure to fisheries management and research and it was in her first year with CoosWA that Kaedra discovered a love for salmon conservation and management. Kaedra is looking forward to continuing her work with salmon and furthering her experience in the field.
In her free time, Kaedra enjoys camping, hiking, surfing and waterskiing; basically anything active and outdoors! She also enjoys art and making music, and values spending time with family and friends.
