I am currently a naturalist at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park near Columbus, Ohio. In 2009 I got my BS in Wildlife Science. Over the past few years I have worked at the Columbus Zoo, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, the Kentucky Reptile Zoo, Reptile and Amphibian Ecology International, the Maria Mitchell Association on Nantucket, the Ohio State University entomology extension department and the OSU plant and pest diagnostic clinic, and I conducted research on moth diversity at Denison University.
