Intern, Fire Ecology Laboratory, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy.
B.S., Biology and Environmental Studies, Florida State University.
I recently completed my Bachelor's degree in Biology and in Environmental Studies at Florida State University. I was an intern in the Fire Ecology Lab at Tall Timbers Research Station from 2014 through 2016. I am currently in Vale, Oregon working with the Bureau of Land Management. I am conducting vegetation surveys and monitoring breeding sites for the Greater Sage-Grouse in eastern Oregon. I plan to attend graduate school within the next year, seeking a Master's in Biology. My research interests include botany, fire ecology, ecology, and land management. My hobbies include hiking, botanizing, and driving.
