     My name is Kelsey Miller, and I am currently a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  I grew up in Hubertus, Wisconsin with my family and dog and attended Hartford Union High School where I was very active in the choral and theater programs.  My passions have changed, however, since admission to UW-L where I have always been encouraged to do my absolute best and never be afraid to ask for help.  I have chosen to double major in Biomedical Sciences and Spanish while on the Pre-Physician’s Assistant career path.  I have a passion for biology and anatomy, and spend a few hours a week tutoring students in introductory biology.  I completed the Habitat and Interactions pages for this website.     
    When I am not studying, I enjoy the company of friends and family.  My favorite holiday, by far, is Thanksgiving because it’s solely focused on reuniting with family, eating food, and watching football (I am a die-hard Packers fan!).  I am also somewhat married to my Kindle and will always find time to squeeze in a good book between exams and homework; I am currently reading Steinbeck’s East of Eden.  When I am with my friends, I am usually doing something embarrassing, but in times of tough exams and ceaseless projects that is just the therapy I need.

         My name is Aislynn Wagner.  I am 20 years old and a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  I was born in West Allis, Wisconsin but my family moved out to the country when I was six years old.  Aislynn WagnerI attended Kettle Moraine High School and babysat for many families throughout my middle school and high school careers.  At a very young age I developed an obsession with animals, and this obsession has only gotten stronger as I have gotten older.  I do not have a major picked out yet, but my dream job would be some sort of an animal trainer/caretaker at a zoo or aquarium.  I am considering majoring in biology because it is one of my favorite subjects, along with psychology and algebra.  In my free time I enjoy reading, running, watching movies, playing video games and doing anything involving animals (especially my cat.)  I am a bit of a perfectionist (okay, maybe more than a bit) so I tend to get very stressed when it comes to school work.  But, as my parents say, as long as the information is interesting and I am absorbing it, a little bit of stress is worth it!  When I grow up, I plan on living with many animals because animals are my greatest passion in life.  Yes, someday, I will most likely become a crazy cat lady.
     For this website, I completed the Form and Function and the Life History and Reproduction pages.  I enjoyed exploring all of the information available (about our species) and learned a lot in the process.  I hope that you find our website useful and interesting!

     Thank you for visiting our page! This website was created for our Organismal Biology class under the instruction of Dr. Barrett Klein and Dr. Anita Baines.  The theme for our class this semester was “Decomposers”, but not just any decomposers; we were challenged to find decomposers that would be useful in forensic entomology (the study of insects to determine time of death of a corpse).  Therefore, we chose the common pill bug to learn more about its interesting, armadillo-like appearance and everything else that makes it unique as an organism. This website was completed in December 2013.  To view more informational pages on decomposers, visit If you have any questions for us, feel free to email us at or  We would be glad to help you!
