I'm a 4th year biology student at the University of Idaho with broad interests in the health of our planet and the health of our people. Growing up in a rural community in Idaho gave me passion for the outdoors and for protecting our environment. I have been a research assistant for small mammal, bird, whale, and vegetation projects. My most recent position has been with the University of Idaho Extension in which I've worked with the community to organize and facilitate programs in topics from robotics to horticulture. I am currently serving as the VP of the University of Idaho Chapter of the Women in Science Society, working towards creating an inclusive community of women in STEM on the UI campus. I'm also heavily involved in the Xi Chapter of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority. I find happiness in giving myself to meaningful organizations and in connecting with those around me.
