Personal Summary

I'm starting my first year of my Master's in Geology. I'm originally from Minneapolis, MN, but I've spent the past few years working on ranches in Wyoming. I completed my undergraduate degree at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO. In my free time I like to hang out with my dog Harper and explore Missoula! I'm looking forward to a great year!
