I am a third-semester master’s student in the biology and marine biology department at UNCW. I am also working towards acquiring my graduate certificate in GIS! My thesis has focused on studying the habitat use of Swamp Sparrows in the marshes of Hyde County, NC as they relate to sea level rise. I am originally from New Jersey but have thoroughly enjoyed my time here in Wilmington since I moved down for graduate school two summers ago! In my free time I love to surf, paddleboard, bike, and enjoy all the local beauty this place has to offer!
