Biography

I received a B.S in Zoology from Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho in May 2010. I hail from southeastern Idaho where I gained an appreciation of the outdoors through fly fishing, backpacking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, bird hunting, and big game hunting. My graduate project is to determine if biological differences exist among genetically distinct stocks of lake whitefish in Lake Michigan.
