My love for geology was born and raised in southern California, where earthquakes and desert landscapes sparked a curiosity in me that has taken me to some of the hottest, and coldest places on Earth. My academic foundation was built at Radford Univeristy in Virginia, where I double majored in Physics and Geology, and fell in love with glacier research. I recently completed my master's degree in Geology and a Graduate Certificate in GIS at Portland State University, and I am looking forward to a bright GeoFuture! I will always be learning, I will always be teaching, and I am grateful for these opportunities!
