Hello! I am a senior Pre-Professional Zoology major and Environmental Studies minor. I grew up in the suburb of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, where I learned the value of community, political involvement, and public schools. My major career interests are in environmental education and working with animals; I particularly enjoy learning about birds and the great apes. This summer I lived in Delaware and worked at the Columbus Zoo summer camps. I enjoy backpacking and led a Spring Break Wilderness Trek last year to Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in Tennessee. I’ve also backpacked in New Hampshire, Utah, Ohio and Florida. I enjoy cooking, reading, and traveling; my favorite trip so far has been to the Ecuadorian Rainforest and the Galapagos Islands with the Island Biology class.
