BS, Aquatic and Fishery Science; General Biology


My foremost love in the world is anything that lives underwater. Consequently, I am a double major in Aquatic and Fisheries Science and General Biology. My interests in the arctic began while spending 7 weeks in Aleknagik and Pedro Bay, Alaska studying salmon with the School of Aquatic and Fisheries science. Although we were closer to the Aleutians than we were the Arctic Circle, it was there that I realized just how different northern life and culture is from the lower 48. Moreover, I find the ecosystems at these northern climes to be very different and very interesting, and definitely something that I would like to learn more about.
