What was your favorite class? Desert Field Biology
Why: It prepared me for a career in field work by personally getting to research on federal lands and a preserve. We not only learned to camp in desert conditions but we also got to enjoy working alongside your friends.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? I would like to live in several different places:
Colorado (again) because I was too young to enjoy the mountains and snow, Japan so I can study in their forests and experience the nightlife, and Panama because it’s a tropical climate full of life and I would be able to study near family.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Gravity Manipulation
What are your plans after graduation? Find a job working at a small environmental consulting agency here in San Antonio like SWCA Environmental Consultants.
What is your dream job? I’d love to work alongside a wildlife biologist as we travel across Texas conducting insect, reptile, amphibian, and mammal surveys.
What is one word you would use to describe yourself? Patient
What advice would you give the incoming freshmen? Take advantage of your office hours and tutoring services! Most of all be kind - a single gesture can change somebody’s day.
