I’m a Master’s student advised by Dr. Jodi Rowley. My project investigates the relationship between bushfires and amphibian diseases in Australia. Growing up in the Great Lakes region of the United States, I spent my childhood searching for salamanders and frogs. During my time at Northern Michigan University, my research focused on salamander ecology and conservation. I was lucky enough to continue chasing frogs while working on amphibian surveying projects with the U.S. Forest Service and later, poison frog research in South America.

When not admiring frogs, I enjoy playing in the ocean, listening to bluegrass music, and reading Steinbeck novels. I’m always happy to chat about frogs, get in touch!
