 General Information

Faculty Advisor - Dr. Michael Jenkins

I am part of the collaborative deer project that is taking way, and my focus for this project is on the successional changes of native plant communities that are brought on by deer browsing.

I received my bachelors in biology from the University of Arkansas Fort Smith, before receiving my masters in forest resources from the University of Arkansas Monticello.

My masters thesis focuses on environment effects on season nitrogen cycling in trees. My research interests are ecologically focused, with special interests in how different species interact, and wildlife management habitat conservation.
