Makenzie Kohler

I’m Makenzie, and I am going to be in my third year of being a biology major with a focus on biomedical sciences with a minor in psychology! I study developmental behavioral neuroscience, and I have been in Dr. Brumley’s lab for almost a year now. I love to cook and go hiking. If I’m not at school or work, you will catch me outside doing something!
