Along with Kevin Burls, Cynthia co-founded Nevada Bugs & Butterflies. Cynthia is a lifetime Nevadan, native to Reno and earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Nevada, Reno. Her Master’s research looked at interactions between Melissa Blues, the parasitoids that attack it, and the ants that defend it. Exploring the wild lands of Nevada for butterflies and other bugs is one of her favorite activities!
