Hello!

I am an entomological enthusiast who has been identifying insects for ~6 years and wanted to start contributing to INaturalist! I received my undergraduate degree in Ecosystem Science and Sustainability from Colorado State University with a minor in Entomology. I continued on to complete my master's degree in Bioagricultural Science with a specialization in Entomology and Pest Management advised by Dr. Whitney Cranshaw. I worked closely with the C. P. Gillette Entomology Museum of Arthropod Diversity, was employed as a Teaching Assistant for both terrestrial and aquatic entomology laboratories and was an officer and president of the CSU Entomology Club (2015-2020).

I currently act as curator at the Miller Museum of Entomological Wonder (@miller_museum). The Miller Museum revolutionizes the ways and means of curating insects by sticking to rigorous standards, including climate data, habitat data and tracking geolocations within a user friendly database. You can even interact with the museum via Amazon Alexa! View it HERE.

My first entomological love was ants. They inspired me to pursue the study of insects and discover a love for insect diversity. I now mainly focus on various pest species. I am working on the publication of the Patterson LLC Biological Catalogue, which covers all biological components of a family owned dairy farm located in New York.
