Height comparison between myself (5'0") and an American Black Bear (448 lbs) that had been harvested in Minong, WI, September 2003.  This was my first bear hunt (I did not harvest this particular bear).
     I am a Biology major with a concentration in Environmental Science, expected to graduate Spring 2015.  I hope to utilize my Bachelors degree, along with my Associates degree in Criminal Justice, to find my niche in Western Wisconsin and assist other researchers with the conservation of wildlife. 
      With the expansion of previously extirpated organisms, not just Black Bears, I predict that there will be an increase in research opportunities, of which I intend to take full advantage.  I have a passion for mammals, particularly carnivores, and it would be a tremendous pleasure to join a project involved in restoring previous populations.
     This website was a semester long project for Organismal Biology (Bio 203) and an excellent stepping stone for gaining experience.  Catching inspiration early in the semester, I created this site from scratch rather than using a template and completed the following pages: Home page, Classification, Interactions, Life History & Reproduction, and Interesting Facts.

     I am currently studying as a Biology major at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse and am
also going for Pre-Nursing. After graduating with a Biology Bachelor's degree from La Crosse, I plan to attend the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and participate in the Nursing program in order to become a Nurse Practitioner. I am originally from the Northeastern portion of Wisconsin and plan to get a job in that area once I become a certified nurse.
