Internship: Public Safety Intern-I conducted education and outreach programs promoting water and wildlife safety.

Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class that I have taken at Juniata College is the Field Research Methods course. This course gives students opportunities to explore many field techniques for acquiring data in both aquatic and terrestrial environments. I am aspiring to become an aquatic ecology field researcher and this course has given me experience with the many tools used by aquatic ecologists.

Favorite Faculty Member: Dr. Neil Pelkey is a professor that has been there for me since my first day at Juniata College. He is both my adviser and environmental science instructor. He is responsible for my acquisition of the Public Safety Intern position I held this past summer. This position was an incredible experience, as well as a decent resume component, for which I am grateful.
