Dr. Young has worked in the field of conservation biology since the 1990’s.  Her research, along with others, resulted in the recognition of a new species, the Gunnison Sage-grouse, as well as documenting its imperiled habitat and status.  During her career, she has supervised student research on a variety of projects and participated in local stakeholder working groups as well as advised the United Nations International Union for the Conservation of Nature specialist grouse group on global conservation issues.  She currently travels internationally during much of the year and is particularly interested in helping others develop the skills and projects that can enact meaningful and sustainable change.
