Land Protection Specialist
Susanna Glass will be overseeing the monitoring and management of all the conservation easements held by HeadWaters. Susanna is passionate about conserving wildlife and the beautiful habitats they need, especially reptiles, amphibians, and wetland habitats.
She graduated from Union University in 2017 with a B.S. in Conservation Biology and from the University of Georgia with an M.S. in Wildlife Science in 2022. After her undergrad education, Susanna worked as a wildlife and habitat technician in New York, Indiana, Georgia, Wisconsin, and southern Michigan. Her master’s work took her to the Mojave Desert of California to study Mojave Desert tortoises and how to help their populations recover. During all of these technician positions, Susanna monitored and restored various habitats, tracked and protected wildlife, participated in prescribed burns, and learned the importance of partnerships to reach conservation goals. In addition, she often gave educational presentations to the public on wildlife and nature, as well as research presentations on various research projects she has been a part of. Susanna also serves as a social media educator for the Midwest Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (MW PARC) pages.
Susanna enjoys hiking, kayaking, gardening, and hanging out with her dog, Suki, and husband, Garrett, in her free time.
