UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Hi, my name is Emily Wilson. I am a senior undergraduate majoring in Animal Sciences. I am a US Navy Veteran and have a passion for zoological conservation of endangered species. I am a wife, mom of two, and dog mom of three. In my free time I enjoy crafting on my Cricut machine, mostly doing clothing and home décor. My current involvement with UIUC includes volunteering at the Wildlife Medical Clinic where I get the unique opportunity to be hands on with all different species of wildlife from raptors to amphibians, with my favorite animal being the Virginia Opossum. I hope to gain invaluable knowledge from working with Dr. Flaws and her staff and can’t wait to see where this experience takes me.
