Toby is earning a MS in Soil Science with Dr. Deirdre Griffin LaHue. She grew up outside Enumclaw, WA and graduated with a BS in Environmental Science from Western Washington University in 2018. During the past summers, she has worked at WSU Puyallup in the Plant Pathology and Organic Farming Systems programs and the King County Wastewater Treatment Division Biosolids Program. Her primary interest is the intersection between agricultural systems and environmental protection from the perspective of soils.

When not working, she can be found playing with her dogs, reforesting her family’s forest, or cooking.
