MARIA BAZEMORE

What inspired you to choose your career path?
It was actually a cell biology class I took my freshman year in college. I was so fascinated by the inner workings of the cell and it was at that moment that I knew I wanted to be a biologist. It was a couple of years later when I interned with The Nature Conservancy that I discovered becoming an Ecologist would be a great career path. With ecology, I would be learning about the plants and animals that make up a functioning ecosystem which is similar to learning about the parts of a cell, but with ecology I could be outside and not stuck in a lab.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy working with clients and colleagues to find a practical solution that also benefits the environment. I also still love the field work.

What are you most passionate about?
Conservation and the outdoors are very close to my heart. I enjoy amateur botanizing and hiking around Florida with my husband, daughter and two dogs.

What is your greatest challenge?
I am often very detail-oriented; however, it is easy to get caught up in the details and miss the bigger picture.  That is when I find it so valuable to gain another perspective from our team or from someone outside of my discipline.  This has really helped me to find new and innovative solutions that I might have missed otherwise.

Name an important “lessons learned” moment you have experienced.
When I first moved to Florida a few years ago, I felt like I didnít know anyone in my field. Before long, I started to meeting colleagues who shared connections with people I had known or worked with in different parts of the country. I found the ecology network is a small world after all. I keep this in mind now, no matter where I am, because you never know when or where those connections will show up in your life.
