Hi I’m Gabby! I am very excited to be working with Upward Bound this summer, as it combines two passions of mine – engaging students in science and doing hands-on research! I graduated with a BS in Environmental Science from Drake University in 2017. Since then I have traveled to Trinidad and Tobago to study ecoevolution in guppy populations in remote streams and guided rafts on rivers in Northern Maine. I have spent three semesters teaching at The Ecology School, an outdoor science school that educates students about the natural processes and interconnectedness of the ecosystems around us. In my free time I like to do yoga, river board, take walks, and play games (really anything that gets my outside).
