- I'm an undergraduate student in the Environmental Resources Engineering department at Humboldt State University, and a long-time resident of the north coast of California. I'm excited about exploring the different aspects of environmental engineering while in school, and look forward to devoting my career to studying and developing solutions to our environmental woes.
Since transferring to HSU, I've become an active member of the Society of Women Engineers. 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.
