One of the most notable names in television history is Carole Baskin.  Famed as the arch-nemesis of Joe Exotic on the Netflix series Tiger King she has gained worldwide fame for herself.  We recently discovered Dr. Baskin lives and works right here in Kentucky.

Ok so it's not the Carole Baskin from the Tiger King but it is Carol Baskin. She is a professor of Biology at the University of Kentucky.  This Carol has taken a much safer route in Biology.

Biology according to Wikipedia is the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development, and evolution. 

Dr. Baskin has a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in Biology, Ecology, and Evolutionary Biology.

If you are a University of Kentucky Student and majoring in Biology or some sort of science you may just end up having Dr. Baskin.
