Upon graduation, she was introduced to the world of honey bees through employment with a private startup that focused on honey bee health research and in-hive technology development. She continues to explore her interest in honey bees at the Niño Lab as a lab assistant and works on a multitude of projects that focus on the effects of various abiotic and biotic factors on honey bee health.

She is also working on a study that aims to measure the impact of probiotics on honey bee health.
