I am a Master’s of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences student with an interest in fisheries research and management. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of North Alabama in 2011, where I conducted undergraduate research on freshwater snail ecology. In 2016, I completed a UF graduate certificate in Aquaculture and Fish Health. I have been an employee of the University of Florida for over six years and currently work as the program assistant for the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Aquatic Animal Health Program. I also work part-time as the aquarist for Bass Pro Shops Gainesville, where I manage and care for a 12,000 gallon freshwater exhibit of native game fish.
