I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the University of Wyoming. From 2007-2011, I studied at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where I earned degrees in environment studies and economics. I was also co-captain of the Gettysburg College bullets track & field team and an experiential education facilitator for the Gettysburg Recreation Adventure Board (GRAB). I am passionate about most outdoor activities, all New England sports teams and recently photography. I will be entering the 2015 academic job market where I anxiously await a research-oriented career that will also allow me to pursue my passion of teaching economics at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
