Christina Byrd, a 2006 graduate from Lakeland High School, received her undergraduate degrees in Geology and Biology from William & Mary. She then completed her Masters of Biology degree at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.

Afterward, Christina went on to work at the Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville, Virginia, and the Sternberg Museum-Natural History at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.
