I am originally from Suamico, Wisconsin just outside of Green Bay. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay in 2018. During my undergraduate I conducted a project on the fish community of the Lower Fox River in Green Bay, Wisconsin. After Graduation I worked for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in Spooner, Wisconsin for a year before moving to Mississippi. When I'm not working, I enjoy sports, hunting and fishing. My thesis will focus on invasive Asian Carp distribution in the Pickwick reservoir, the Bay Springs reservoir and the connecting channel. I will also be looking at how the fish assemblages in the Lower Tennessee river have changed over time.
