I am a current senior at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington studying to receive my Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering. I am specifically interesting in the water resource field of engineering, as it is driven by my passion for the outdoors and the environment. I am looking to pursue my engineering studies with an apprenticeship or entry level position, anywhere I see an opportunity. Additionally, I seek knowledge and love to learn.

I am a senior at Gonzaga working towards my Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies. I have a deep love of wild spaces and everything that lives in them, and hope to pursue a career where I can work to both preserve habitat and protect wildlife. Backpacking and collecting house plants are a couple of my favorite pastimes, and it's my goal in life to knit a wearable pair of socks.
