Brief Biography: I grew up outside of Washington, D.C., and came to Maine in 2011. After graduating from the University of Maine, I worked as a wildlife technician and environmental compliance assistant at Acadia National Park. I primarily researched bats and bumblebees at the park, and I also worked with freshwater fish, seabirds, and amphibians.  I returned to UMaine to get my master’s degree and studied Bridle Shiners, a minnow Species of Special Concern, in Maine.

Current Research: I am researching turkey.
