Future Career Goals: Although I’m not sure what I want my exact career to be, but I know I would like to go to graduate school. After that, I am hoping to do environmental conservation work in some form.

Favorite Part About SENR: SENR has an entirely different feel from main campus, it’s like having a small school within such a large school. I love how passionate every student in the college is. Everyone in the school wants to make a positive impact on the world and it is incredibly inspiring working with students and meeting people of all walks of life who share a common goal.

Research: As an Undergraduate Research Assistant, I have assisted graduate students on projects researching the effects of turbidity on fish.
