Jaimi Butler earned her Fisheries degree in 1999 from Utah State and in a giant twist of irony inadvertently found herself working in fish-less Great Salt Lake as a brine shrimp biologist (with an ever-expanding affinity to the birds who eat them). She immediately found our unique salty neighbor to be her place and since 1999 has been an enthusiastic student of all aspects of the lake. Jaimi?s entire professional career has been at Great Salt Lake including working in academia, with the brine shrimp harvesting industry and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources Great Salt Lake Ecosystem Program. Currently coordinator for Great Salt Lake Institute at Westminster College Jaimi helps faculty and students perform lake research and works to convince people how great Great Salt Lake really is. In her free time Jaimi can be found trying to maintain her sanity as wife of a government employee a mother of a threenager and a teenager.
Great Salt Lake, birds, bugs.
