I strive to use the funds from my endowed professorship to give many more students their first taste of research and get them excited about science. On behalf of me, but especially my current and future students, thank you for making this possible!

When I consider my opportunities and career aspirations, my number one goal would be to obtain a position as an environmental attorney. I could not think of a more impactful or pertinent experiential learning opportunity than my internship with the DOJ’s Environment and Natural Resource Division. This opportunity is only a reality for me because of the generous experiential learning support I received from the Ratcliffe Scholars program.
