Todd Gilmore's experience as a student exposed him to a variety of different opportunities within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) while he pursues a Master of Science degree in Environmental Science at Washington State University, Vancouver. Prior to being accepted into Pathways he worked for the Service under the former Student Temporary Experience Program (STEP) completing numerous Geographical Information System (GIS), data analysis and determination of age class structure assignments related to monitoring and evaluating populations of coastal cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki clarki) and steelhead (O. mykiss) in Abernathy Creek, WA.
When he's not behind a desk studying for school, he enjoys outdoor recreational activities, especially fishing. Due to his strong interest in fishing, conserving and restoring fisheries is one of his primary interests.
