She has served the UTC birding organizations in several capacities on the Houston Audubon, Houston Ornithology Group of the Outdoor Nature Club and Armand Bayou Nature Center. During her 12 years living in Austin, she started the Hornsby Bend monthly surveys, which continue today. In addition, she coached and chaperoned a Rough-wings (8-13 year olds) teams in the Great Birding Classic from 1999 to 2008. Recently she taught a birding Mini Course to students at Westbrook Intermediate School and currently is sponsoring the Westbrook Birding Club and coordinating activities and bird sightings with a youth group in Yaxha, Yucatan. The only thing she enjoys more than seeing good birds, is showing them to others!
