Her goal upon completing her MLIS degree is to work within the museum field, an opportunity that will allow her to connect with the community through engagement and enrich their lives through unique experiences, ideas, and modes of learning.

Her artistic work focuses on the intersection of environmental activism and personal issues, pulling inspiration from locations with a connection to her life. This work is grounded in scientific research, pulled from sources like Environmental Protection Agency and assorted conservation organizations. In addition to making these issues more accessible, her work communicates an important message: We must all work together to ensure a more sustainable future for all of us.
