I am originally from the Poconos, Pennsylvania. I received a B.S. in Biology from Wilkes University in 2015. I’m now an M.S. student at Oklahoma State University, where I’m co-advised between the natural resource ecology & management and entomology & plant pathology departments. My research interests broadly include urban ecology, disease ecology, and citizen science. In my free time I enjoy crafting, hiking, climbing, eating, and spoiling my rescued chiweenie mix, Apollo.
