Chris has traveled all over the world, studying abroad in Australia and South Africa. During the summer of 2010, he was an intern for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, estimating brown bear populations on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.

Chris was first introduced to the Hopkins’ lab as a volunteer. He helped with wood duck husbandry in the spring of 2010. During his senior year, he continued to volunteer in the lab while helping with the freshwater turtle husbandry.

After graduating in May 2011 with a major in Wildlife Science, Chris was offered a full-time position as a lab technician. He later returned to school to earn his Teacher Certification at West Chester University.

Currently, Chris is a high school science teacher in Raleigh-Durham, NC.
