Neal is excited to be back at Vineland after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife. From subsequent work in conservation biology in Santa Fe National Forest and the Brazilian Amazon, Neal realized a passion for trees. His career goals with Vineland include achieving proficiency as a commercial tree climber and ISA certification. Off the job, Neal is training for his first marathon, but finds true solace while sitting in a canoe, in a cove, while bobber-fishin for bluegills.
