About Me Publications
I am a senior at Carthage College. Though my school is located in Kenosha, Wisconsin, my hometown is Gladstone, which is a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I have a double major in Geography & Earth Science and Management, with a minor in Public Relations. Right now, I am the most interested in pursuing a career in natural disaster management planning so that I am able to combine the skills of my majors and minor. My senior thesis is on earthquake disaster management in Los Angeles, so this internship through SCEC fit perfectly into what I needed more knowledge on. I have never done actual research, so I hope that this internship prepares me for my future and helps me to figure out exactly what I want to do in the future. For after graduation, I am currently looking at graduate schools. I would love to expand my knowledge of geologic studies after graduation. Outside of my education, some things that I enjoy are plants, cats, traveling, journaling, and volunteering.
