Keisha graduates from SIUC

Our colleague Keisha Luhrsen is now with us full time!

As of December, Keisha is officially a graduate of Southern Illinois University - Carbondale, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in zoology.

Part of her field work included sampling vegetation composition and density on various sites along the Cache River wetlands and tracking local populations of swamp rabbits via radio telemetry.

Keisha started working with us at Little River in 2013. Her knowledge of wildlife biology and ecology strengthens our ability to fulfill our mission of helping river ecosystems through education.

Currently as our assistant prototyper, Keisha focuses on building our Emriver geomodels and Emflume1.

From our Structures Kit to our Alix Digital Flow Controller, Keisha builds what our model users need to teach and conduct research using her skills in soldering and working with acrylics.

She’s also a skilled packer and readies models to journey to clients and conferences within the U.S. and around the world.

We’re happy to have such a great assistant prototyper here at Little River with us five days a week. We appreciate all you do, Keisha!
