I completed my undergraduate education in Animal Ecology and Forestry at Iowa State University in 2010. While a student at Iowa State, I assisted numerous graduate students with wildlife research projects and even developed my own project on the vegetative cover used by jackrabbits. I received my Master of Science degree in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University in March of 2013. My thesis involved studying the impact of spring and summer prescribed fire in forest management on wild turkey nest survival. The field of Biology is thrilling to me, from cell replication to plant and animal physiology and especially ecosystem-level processes. Through my experiences in Biology and Environmental Science, however, I have learned to appreciate and thoroughly enjoy math as well. The majority of my tutoring experience has been in Math, particularly Algebra 1; however, my favorite subjects are Biology and Environmental Science! Because of my love for nature and the out of doors, I like to incorporate real world, hands on examples when teaching. When I take a break from learning, I love to hike, especially with my dog Lilly, bird-watch, and even play some video games!
