Blending techniques Tricia learned in the classroom with real life field projects has brought a new perspective to TEAMS soil analysis projects.  She gained experience in soils working for watershed consulting, planning, and implementing soil disturbance research as well as other restoration.  Studying under Tom Deluca at the University of Montana in Missoula, Tricia focused on soil biochemistry and ecology, as well as soil morphology and genesis.

Tricia has worked with TEAMS since 2007.
