Elyse Ellsworth Biography



Elyse is a Biology major from Yukon, Oklahoma. She is a senior, undergraduate student at the University of Oklahoma. In her free time, she enjoys drawing and painting, playing video games, and being outdoors. Elyse first got interested with wildlife when she was young. As a child, she was always outside catching animals such as turtles and snakes from the pond in her neighborhood and kept them as pets for a week before releasing them back. Elyse started with the lab after taking Dr. Siler’s herpetology course in Spring 2015. She then took a two-week field herpetology at the OU Biostation and that is when she realized she wanted to be a herpetologist. She plans to go continue her education and receive her masters in biology.
