I'm Emily, a graduate student working towards a Master's of Science in Environmental Studies. I have a Bachelors degree in Environmental Biology and a Minor in Studio Art. My creativity is inspired by the natural world. I often think there has been a loss of respect and appreciation for nature, so I like to remind people that this is completely unwarranted. I believe there is nothing as beautiful as something naturally created. I spend the majority of my work conducting field research, so I like to take every opportunity that I can to capture wonderful wildlife specimens on camera. I hope that my future endeavors will lead me to more travels with more wildlife!
