…and I am a senior Zoology major, environmental Science and History minor here at Ohio Wesleyan. My life has been rooted in Dayton, Ohio, were my mother, father , five siblings and my niece and nephew all reside. I have known that I wanted to study Zoology since the second grade. My mom still has the paper that I wrote describing that when I grew up I wanted to work at a zoo with all the baby animals. Although I no longer want to work with baby animals, I have turned my love of science, the environment, and teaching, into a potential career path in environmental or science education. One of my favorite ways enjoy the outdoors is in a saddle on the back of a horse. I love to take horses trial riding but also love the competition of the show ring. When I am not riding you can find me watching movies, goofing off with my friends, or chasing after my niece and nephew!
