Georgia is currently an undergrad at Virginia Tech, who started as a biology major but made the switch to wildlife conservation wanting to learn more about the conservation side of science.

As a senior, Georgia has participated in multiple research experiences prior to her involvement with the Hopkins lab. During winter of 2017, she was involved with a project tracking jaguar movement in Belize.
