Jessy is a student of biology at the University of Wisconsin in Superior. After she graduates this spring, she plans to continue to study wetland habitat preservation science in order to provide policy makers with quality data that will inform their decision-making process. As NERR’s research intern, she is currently investigating the effects of sedimentation on Loosestrife biocontrol mechanisms. When she is not working with Loosestrife and Loosestrife beetles, Jessy enjoys exploring the Lake Superior shorelines and nearby forests of the Twin Ports area by foot, canoe, bike, dogsled, and ski.
