Leah earned a B.A. in Biology in 2015 from Appalachian State University, in her home state of North Carolina. Since then, she has contributed to numerous wildlife and natural resource management projects across the US and abroad, notably with bighorn sheep in Grand Teton National Park, elk in Chaco Canyon, and king cobras in Thailand. As a graduate student in the NM Coop Unit, Leah will be creating a multi-species occupancy model investigating the effects of wildfire, prescribed burns, and forest management on large mammal ecology in the Jemez Mountains.
