About Me

Kelsey Burrell
I'm a first-year Environmental Resources Engineering transfer student at Humboldt State University and a long-time resident of the North Coast of California. Part of the reason I chose this undergraduate program is to become proficient in water resources engineering. I'm planning to help develop solutions to the impending global water crisis with my professional life. I have a lot of math and science under my belt at this point, and I'm enthusiastic to learn more and begin putting that knowledge to good use.

Since transferring to HSU, I've become an active member of the Society of Women Engineers. Most recently, we organized Engineering Fest at Eureka High School, where we invited middle- and high-school kids to get involved in STEM through a free afternoon of fun, engineering-related activities.

In my free time, I love backpacking through the wilderness or just hanging out at a familiar river bar. I can usually be found canoeing and kayaking the summer away, working in my garden, and adding new recipes to my cookbook.
