BA, Economics


I’m from Bellingham, WA but have been spending every summer in Alaska for the past four years, working as a crew member on a whale-watching and glacier charter cruise. Each day we visit Colombia glacier, which is the most active tidewater glacier in North America. Seeing this massive glacier shrink and being surrounded by ice on the daily, definitely sparked my interest in the Arctic. I took Nadine’s Future of Ice seminar my sophomore year out of curiosity, and after completing the course, I was sold! I hope to somehow incorporate my interest in the Arctic in my future travels and work.
