My name is Kirsten, I was born and raised in Alaska with the exception of moving to the Philippines for two years while in grade school. I am currently a junior pursuing a degree in Biology with a concentration in Physiology and a minor in Business Management and Organization. After I graduate with my undergraduate degree I want to be an orthodontist! I have been working in a dental office and absolutely love it! I am excited to learn about microbes and how they are present in our everyday lives.
