I grew up in the Midwest and received a BS in Integrative Biology from the University of Illinois in 2010. Since graduating I have worked as a technician on a sharp-tailed grouse and a sage-grouse research project for the Idaho Dept of Fish & Game and the University of Idaho. My master's research focuses on how spring cattle grazing influences sage-grouse population demographics, nesting behavior, and habitat characteristics. In my free time I enjoy hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, hunting and fishing.
