I am a Masters student focusing my research on the use of aerial imagery taken from drones to assess Summer Chinook spawning on the Wenatchee River. Tying my passion for fisheries, my work for WDFW, and knowledge of drones, was key in bringing my project together. I have B.S. from University of Washington in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences as well as a B.S. in Environmental Science from Washington State University. I have two field seasons working with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife as a field technician in stream restoration and salmonid work. My passion lies in the environment, especially in the aquatic field, and have extensive knowledge in both marine and fresh water ecology. Beyond fisheries, I am a recreational drone enthusiast. My skills include wildlife, water quality, volunteer management, environmental policy, and environmental science. In my free time I enjoy hiking, backpacking, and photography, as well as long walks on the beach.
