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 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 the goal to eventually teach. My thesis work is on the plastic morphological and behavioral responses of larval salamanders to native and non-native predators.
