I currently work as part of the Great Lakes Phragmites Collaborative for the U.S. Geological Survey Great Lakes Science Center. I have a B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University and an M.S. in Conservation Biology from Central Michigan University.
I enjoy working in the lab and in the field, and I am particularly interested in benthic organisms–like tardigrades! I spend my free time drawing, painting, hanging out with my many pets, and listening to podcasts.
