I received my B.S. in Biology from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi with an emphasis in marine biology. I have finished my M.S. degree in the Marine Biology program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in the Department of Life Sciences in Fall of 2019.

My research focused on an ecological assessment of a restored oyster reef in St. Charles Bay, TX, including the influence of restoration on macrobenthic organisms and shoreline dynamics. I conducted my research in the Coastal Conservation and Restoration Ecology Lab that is managed by my advisor, Dr. Jennifer B. Pollack.
