I grew up in Antigo, WI and graduated from Antigo High School in 2016. I continued school and obtained my bachelors degree in Biology with an emphasis in Ecology and Conservation at UW-Green Bay in Spring 2020. As an undergrad, I was able to enroll in the accelerated program and took graduate level courses to begin to work towards my masters. I then began my research as a graduate student in the ES&P program UW-Green Bay in summer of 2020. My interests are in studying pollinators. As an undergrad I did a research project on Monarch butterflies and now as a graduate student I am working with native bees and bumble bees.

My hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, and baking. I also love to travel and see and experience new places and cultures.
