I am originally from Louisiana, but have called Colorado my home for over ten years now. I completed my B.S. here at CSU and am now working on a M.S. with Dr. Will Clements in the Department of Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology. My research interests have included looking at trophic dynamics in lentic and lotic systems and the affects of environmental contaminants in systems. I will be working closely with my colleagues at the US Geological Survey throughout my M.S. research and am thankful for their amazing support. Outside of my career I enjoy spending time with my family and all of the outdoor sports and live music that Colorado has to offer.
