About Penelope




I am a nature and wildlife photographer from Florida who aims to bridge the geographical gap that the global public faces with each photograph. I travel across the world, to national or state parks, or to just my backyard to capture images of animals and their wild personalities. While originally from Orlando, Florida, I now attend Stanford University in California. I am majoring in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and hope to incorporate my photography into my future studies.


Last year, I participated in the Joint Science Edu. Program with Dartmouth, studying the ecology of Greenland along with other Danish and Greenlandic students. During the summer of 2019, I traveled to the Canadian Arctic with National Geographic to study and photograph the ecology and native life of the north. I have also worked under Dr. Anne Savage through an internship with her organization Proyecto Titi, where I organized and analyzed data on cotton-top tamarin food patterns. I am currently working in the Lab of Organismal Biology at Stanford University, under the mentorship of Dr. Julie Butler and Billie Goolsby.
