I received my BS in Biology at Illinois State University in 2010. As an undergraduate, I conducted research on mosquito larvae (Aedes sp.) testing population growth under various conditions of food availability. Following graduation I worked as an ecological consultant managing and assisting with projects focusing on wind energy development, watershed planning, flora and fauna monitoring, wetland delineations, site management planning, and regulatory document preparation. For my thesis at Eastern Washington University I will be exploring the interaction between biocrust and vascular plants in Eastern Washington.
