(This website was created for the ENSC-5202 Superfund Project and Independent Study requirements.) I am currently working at the Ocean County Mosquito Commission as Biologist, ID Specialist, and Community Outreach Coordinator. I have my Masters Degree in Environmental Studies from Stockton University, and have obtained Bachelor's Degrees in both Biology and Education. I am also an adjunct professor at Stockton University teaching a Graduate level course called Community Engagement and Outreach. I also teach multiple sections of Cells and Molecules lab and Biodiversity and Evolution lab. I hope to become an assistant professor soon and continue to work in Higher Education and at the Ocean County Mosquito Commission.

Before focusing on the Sciences, I spent my time performing with a variety of different musical groups as a classically trained percussionist. My focus was Mallet Percussion and Timpani, but enjoyed playing all parts of the percussion sections. During High School I was selected to perform with The All South Jersey band 3 years in a row and with The All-State Band my senior year. I participated in many other activities like; wind ensemble, percussion ensemble, marching band, drum corps, pit orchestra, and jazz band. During my time in Undergrad at Stockton University I performed with the Jazz Ensemble for 3 semesters playing Vibraphone. My love of music still carries with me today playing piano in my spare time and attending concerts and festivals whenever I can.

I currently work at the Ocean County Mosquito Commission as Biologist, Identification Specialist, and Community Outreach Coordinator. Last year was my 4th year working there as a seasonal employee and have recently been promoted to a full time position. My love for entomology, ecology, and education have come together to give me the job I always dreamed of. I love working with insects in the lab and in the field, and still being able to teach children during the school year.
