Muller replaces Patty Nagel, who retired in 2012 as deputy manager of the two-parcel refuge in Crawford County.
Muller said in an interview for the Northeast Region blog that she has experience at five other refuges.
“I began my career as a volunteer at Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge in 2002 and then while earning my bachelor’s degree in wildlife management from The Ohio State University, I got a job with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through the Student Career Experience Program in 2003. I’ve worked my way through the management series at five different stations in Montana, North Dakota, and Texas. I’ve had the fortune of working in China for four weeks during a Wildlife Without Borders exchange program and also served as a core team member for the Relevance to a Changing America in preparation for the National Wildlife Refuge System’s new vision document, ‘Conserving the Future: Wildlife Refuges and the Next Generation.’ Most recently, I’m moving from Aransas National Wildlife Refuge in Texas where I’ve spent the last five years as the wildlife refuge specialist in charge of visitor services and habitat management.”
