I finished my degree in biological sciences at the University of Alberta in 2013 and I am excited to start my program with the Land Reclamation International Graduate School in fall 2014. My MSc. project will examine songbird use of reclaimed well pad sites in Northern Alberta using acoustic recording devices. I am driven by my interest in animals and find the areas of animal welfare and wildlife conservation to be closely linked. In my spare time I enjoy doing yoga, volunteering, reading, cooking and spending time with my animals.
