Research Interests

I am interested in entomology and botany. Particularly, I studied monarch butterflies, milkweed, and other flowering non-grass plants within mixed-grass prairies managed with various grazing strategies such as patch-burn grazing, and now I am extending my experience towards bees in tall-grass prairie. I am excited to learn new plants, identify bee species, and lead the pollinator team!


I am originally from Lakeville, MN. I went to the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN for my B.S. degree in environmental science, and then went on to pursue a M.S. in natural resource management through North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND.

In my spare time I like to watch bad dating shows, paint, thrift shop, and spend time with my cat.
