SVP 2017!

Started the school year off with SVP in Calgary, AB! As always, reconnected with old friends, made some new ones, and generally had a blast!! Also presented my own research and got to hear about other new research over the past year.

Phoenix Update!

After settling in back home, I’ve begun volunteering at Arizona Museum of Natural History!

I’m working on cataloguing mammal bones that the museum is assimilating from the collection they received from NAU. I’m working on fossils from the Bighorn Cave. Most of the fossils are from Ovis canadensis, or commonly known as bighorn sheep.

Graduation!!

One degree down!! December 12, 2015 was the commencement ceremony for MSU’s Fall 2015 graduates. I now officially have my Bachelors of Science in Earth Sciences with an Honor’s Distinction Degree and a minor in Museum Studies. And of course I decorated my cap with a T-Rex. More pictures will come as the chaos from moving settles and they get downloaded from various cameras.

This week is Society of Vertebrate Paleontology in Dallas, TX!! I started the conference with presenting my poster Wednesday.

Wednesday night finished with the welcoming dinner at the Perot National History Museum, where we were able to wonder the halls of the museum and see the exhibits, one of which I was able to see like a hawk!
