In 2015, I began my graduate program at Brookfield Zoo just outside of Chicago, Illinois. The program is called the Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) through Project Dragonfly with Miami University. My graduate program focus is to learn how to influence attitudes, behaviors, and actions of adults and children to be better stewards of the natural world. My goals are to educate, raise awareness, and change consumer behavior of those in my community through a series of projects. The primary goal of my graduate program is to raise awareness in urban communities and inspire them to make changes in their lives to positively affect the natural world locally and globally.
