Hi, my name is Kelly and I am an environmental science student with a focus in ecosystem restoration. As seen by my “coat of arms” I am from Cincinnati, Ohio, but I love spending time in the mountains. I just came back to Ohio from Vail, Colorado where I was doing a naturalist internship with a nature center.  During this internship my favorite plant became blue columbine, which is the state flower of Colorado.  I am excited for this class so I can learn more about the plants here in Ohio.  After graduation in the spring, I would like to find a career in the environmental education industry. I really enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, and other activities that allow me to spend time outside and being active. I look forward to learning more about the plants in Ohio throughout the semester!
