I graduated from the Biology: Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation program at the University of Washington in 2019 and was commissioned into the Army as a Logistics Officer. As my time in service is coming to an end, I am excited to join the Cascadia Team and transition into the wildlife science community once again. I love all things nature and animals, so working in this field has been a lifelong dream and goal of mine! I also currently work weekends at a veterinary clinic while pursuing a degree in Veterinary Technology to better understand the medical, behavioral, and physiological components of research and application. When I am not engaged in school or work, I spend time with my mini zoo of 4 dogs, 2 leopard geckos, a corn snake, and numerous backyard birds at home!
