Hello! I am originally from Richmond, Virginia and graduated from William & Mary in 2022 where I studied geology and biology. My focus was in paleontology, and I did research investigating size and morphological changes in scallops during ancient global warming. More recently, in spring 2023, I was a husbandry intern at the Duke Lemur Center. My work there inspired me to pursue a career working with animals at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
