After first trying her hands a Marine and Microbiology she settled and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Policy. After graduation she was honored for Community Support from Junior Achievement for work with USF’s Botanical Gardens for student water and resource conservation. She also was one of few to have a government job out of college then one of many who later were laid off due to funding. She humbly moved home to Orlando where she had the chance to work with and care for the nations majestic Bald Eagle at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, along with a number of other raptor species. Looking to further a career in Ecological Restoration and Wildlife Management, she stumbled upon the Student Conservation Association.
