I received my BS in Environmental Conservation Studies from the University of New Hampshire in 2008. My undergraduate studies were focused on wetland ecology and restoration and I conducted research on restoration techniques for the eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica). Following the completion of my BS, I worked for the Peace Corps in Morocco and taught environmental education in the High Atlas mountains. My thesis research is on vegetation response following the removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams on the Elwha River in Washington. Specifically, I will examine plant community structure before and after dam removal and the influence of edaphic conditions on new plant communities.
