I recently graduated from the University of Michigan with a PhD in Natural Resources and Environment and I am currently working as an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Biology at a combination of the University of Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and Holden Arboretum. Before grad school I majored in Biology at the University of Washington, graduating in 2012.

My favorite activities involve being in nature and working as an educator and mentor. I like to ski, hike, and go for long walks with my partner, Elissa, and with my dog, Hendrix.
