I grew up in Washington, exploring the outdoors with my family whenever we could. I fell in love with the natural world and pursued a biology research career. I loved working in laboratories, but I quickly realized that there is a huge disconnect between the “producers” and “consumers” of science.
I am at IslandWood to learn how to bridge the gap between scientists and the public and improve the accessibility of science by working at the intersection of education, equity, environmentalism, and biology.
In my free time I love drawing, playing guitar, taking pictures of mushrooms, and hanging out with my three cats: Chicken, Acorn, and Bunny.
