About Me

I am an alumni from Quinnipiac University and The University of New Haven with a BS in Biology and an MS in Environmental Science. I have studied forensics, anthropology, chemistry, ecology, and genetics. I hope to find a career in the biological science. My pro-activity and hard work has granted me places on the dean's list and my research has been presented at conferences both at the university as well as at other academic conferences in New England, such as the New England Undergraduate Sociology Research Conference and the 74th Eastern New England Biological Conference (ENEBC) in Hamden. In addition to my academic work, I have worked and volunteered for several conservation-related organizations such as Animal Embassy, the Beardsley Zoo, and Jones Family Farm.
