I am from Maryland. I have lived there my whole life. Prior to attending UT, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Anthropology with minors in History and Biology from Longwood University. During my time as an undergraduate, I was able to help develop instructional aids for an introductory forensic anthropology course for the Anthropology and Archaeology program at Longwood. Those aids include written and visual aids. I also worked with GIS for Longwood's Institute of Archaeology on a project that measured the rate of erosion on the coast of Virginia over time. I am currently working toward my Master of Arts in Anthropology with a concentration in Biological Anthropology. My interests include forensic anthropology, bioarchaeology, stable isotope analysis, forensic taphonomy, bilateral asymmetry of the human skeleton, and human osteology and skeletal biology.
