I was born in New Market, Ont., Canada in 1990 and was moved to Tulsa, OK around 1994 where I have obtained dual citizenship with the U.S and Canada. I grew up and went to school in Tulsa. I attended a community college in Tulsa for 2 years and received my Associate’s in Arts before deciding to major in Geology. During those two years, I worked part-time at a dental office as a receptionist. I also did a study abroad in Greece for 2 weeks and attended UC-Berkeley for a summer course. I finally transferred to Oklahoma State University to finish my Undergraduate degree. During my time at OSU, I was very involved with the Geology community and went on geology club trips to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Arches National Park, Alabaster Caverns, Sunset Crater, Meteor Crater, and other great places, as well as class field trips to local outcrops. I recently graduated in May of 2013 from OSU with a BS in Geology and minor in Geography. During this passed summer, I was an intern at the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) in Alexandria, VA. During my time at AGI, I worked with the workforce program’s data collection efforts for AGI’s Geoscience Student Exit Survey and Survey of the Geoscience Workforce, as well as updating department information for the next iteration of the Directory of Geoscience Departments. I am a person of variety. I have many hobbies and interests and I love to try new things. I love to socialize and work with people. I especially love to explore and understand our planet. I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, skiing, climbing, basketball, soccer, writing, painting, music, and much more. My research interests include Volcanology, Planetary Geology, Plate Tectonics, and Historical Geology.
