After 3.5 weeks spent doing in-office research, which has consisted of a lot of statistics, softwares, ARDs, SOPs, and reading through lots of User Manuals I finally got the opportunity to do a  couple hours of field work this past week! I got to deploy an SM3 Automated Recording Devices in a couple different spots near some sloughs in Everglades National Park. It was nice getting to go out! Just a bit of advice though; it you ever feel inclined to go exploring the Everglades in the middle of June beware of the most vicious residents of the Everglades. Mosquitoes!

So a bit about myself: I was born & raised in Colorado but I identify as a womyn of color and am of Mexican descent. I am currently a college student studying Fish, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, and Ethnic Studies. Two of the things I love most is getting to spend time in nature and reading. I definitely view the outdoors and books as one of the finer things in life. My reading preferences are pretty widespread; I like reading historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction, classics and non-fiction. I also enjoy biking, swimming, drawing/painting, gardening, and just wandering and exploring new places. I am not a big fan of pop culture and don’t watch much television, although I do enjoy watching documentaries and traveling/cooking shows.
