About the Author

Thank you for taking time to visit my webpage! I hope you have learned not only a lot about this species, but also how it interacts with other organisms including you, its potential host. Now, a little about me...

I am currently a freshman at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I plan on majoring in Biology with an emphasis in Biomedical Science and double minors in Psychology and Chemistry and eventually I would like to continue my education to become a physician assistant. Until then, I am working part-time as a Certified Nursing Assistant. When I am not studying or working, I enjoy being active whether that is biking, hiking the bluffs, or playing rugby. I was interested in doing research on this species for my Organismal Biology project because of its impact as a human pathogen and its unique adaptations and toxicology.
If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me at Brusky.kell@uwlax.edu.
