I received my bachelor's in English from the Evergreen State College in 2007. After a jumble of eclectic life experiences, I returned to school for post-bac studies in biology. In 2013, I joined an ongoing project studying population dynamics of freshwater turtles in Florida. I was chosen for a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates in Costa Rica working in herpetology. In 2014, I returned under my own grant-funded study. I came to EWU in 2014 to pursue a master's degree in biology, with thesis work focused on reptilian ecology of the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge.
