I am currently an Assistant Professor of Biology at North Carolina Wesleyan College. I earned my PhD in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota (December 2019). Before entering academia, I was a state naturalist (Wisconsin and Minnesota) and a National Park Ranger.

I established an environmental education consulting business in 2008 - Ami Thompson Consulting LLC. I work with teachers, students, universities, government, and industry professionals to provide teacher workshops, increase science literacy, promote women in science, and write curricula and interpretive text.
