Major: Environmental Science: Conservation and Restoration Ecology
Expected Graduation: December 2018
My first experience with environmental education at Loyola was during my freshman year when I belonged to the GreenHouse Learning Community. From there I gradually switched from the bio/pre-med path and committed to studying environmental science. I’ve spent most of my summers in a tent, as I’ve worked at Boy and Cub Scout summer camps teaching nature, bird study, envi sci, sustainability, etc., so when I found environmental science classes here at Loyola, I felt very comfortable pursuing the subject as my major.
I first saw SEA in action at Water Week events. As I met more and more people from the organization, and learned what the group was capable of, I knew I had to get involved. This is now my second semester active with SEA, and taking this position on the executive board feels like a natural next step of my education at Loyola. I am so excited to learn the ins and outs of what it means to be part of a student organization, and to use this experience as I move forward, ideally into a career in sustainability.
When I’m not at school you can typically find me outside if the weather is nice. If not, I enjoy hunkering down at home - reading, playing guitar, re-watching my favorite shows, or taking cat naps (naps with my cat).
