Rachel Brinkley, Idaho River Storyfort
Rachel grew up in the Treasure Valley. She received her B.S. in Ecology and Conservation Biology from Idaho State University, and is currently working towards her M.S. in Biology. In the summer months, between weekend grinds to alpine lakes, she works in fisheries for the Forest Service in the Upper Salmon and Middle Fork Salmon Watersheds.
As a fisheries biologist in-training, high- mountain lake enthusiast, and fly fisherwoman, Rachel spends more summer nights in the dirt than in her home.
