Dayna Collett, Ph.D.

After starting my Ph.D. in entomology with a 2-year-old and a newborn and managing to complete it before turning 80 years old, I’m convinced anyone can accomplish anything with the right amount of determination and madness. While my background is in entomology, I’m currently enjoying my field biologist position here at NewLeaf. In my downtime, I enjoy all things outdoorsy, convincing people spiders are friends, and deciphering blurry pictures of smashed insects sent to me by everyone I know.
