Becky Burchell is a native Oregonian, born and raised and currently living in Madras, Oregon. She received a B.S. in Zoology from Portland State University and immediately moved back home to Madras. She worked as an experimental biological aide for Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for three years, before landing a permanent role as a fisheries biologist for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. For nearly nine years, she worked as their bull trout biologist, spending much of her work time snorkeling and conducting redd surveys in some of the most beautiful and pristine areas. She learned about some of the new work Portland General Electric (PGE) was undertaking and wanted to be a part of it. When she started with PGE, she was a biologist working on the new fish collection facility called the Selective Water Withdrawal. She has been with PGE for 15 years and currently leads biologists and technicians in both adult and juvenile migration studies. When she’s not working, you can find her hiking around Central Oregon with her Belgian Malinois or traveling around the world.
