227 - Parasites as a Gateway to Fisheries with Jenna Ruoss
This week Kadie chats with Jenna Ruoss, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Hailing from Pennsylvania, Jenna grew up hiking, kayaking, looking for critters in streams, and playing outside in the woods in her backyard. Throughout this episode, we chat about how her love of parasites which developed during her undergraduate degree led her to a career in fisheries and her current work studying the endangered Pallid Sturgeon in the lower Platte River, Nebraska.
Main point: Make sure you're happy.
If you'd like to get ahold of Jenna, you can find her on Twitter at @jpruoss.
