Echinacea Project 2015

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 with degrees in Conservation Biology and Spanish.

Research Interests

This summer, I am interested in studying Echinacea. I’d also like to research amphibians at some point in the future, since I’ve loved them my whole life!


I grew up in Ellison Bay, a small town in Door County, Wisconsin, where I learned to love spending time outdoors.┬áSome of my favorite things in the world are camping, books, tea, birding, music, cheese, hiking, lakes, and watching excessive amounts of good television. I hope to someday move out west and work for either the National Parks Service or a conservation organization such as the Nature Conservancy. I’m all about public lands!
