While I’m originally from Maryland, I grew up in small-town southern Wisconsin. I graduated from University of Wisconsin – Madison with a major in wildlife ecology in 2018, and now I’m a graduate student at Western State Colorado University’s Master of Environmental Management program with a focus in integrative and public land management. In the summer of 2015, I took the Wild Rockies Field Institute’s Environmental Ethics course in the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier National Park. I loved it so much, I returned to Montana in the summer of 2016 for their Restoration Ecology course in Yellowstone! Since then, my WRFI experiences have heavily influenced my life and given me enough training to work for the U.S. Geological Survey, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, The Prairie Enthusiasts, and WRFI itself! When I’m not studying, I strength train, go birding, hike, read books, and watch Netflix. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you need help deciding which class to take, how to pack breakfast for three weeks in the field, or anything else you want to know!
