I currently work as a Laboratory Technician in an ecology at the University of Notre Dame. I have a Masters of Science in Environmental Science from Villanova University. I wrote my thesis on the effects of sediment from seasonal storms on salt marshes. My MSES was my second Masters degree. I went to NYU and got a BA in theater, then I got an Masters of Fine Arts in design and technical production from Brooklyn College in 2010. I returned to the Boston area and worked as a freelance designer and carpenter for a few years before deciding that theater was not how I wanted to spend the rest of my life. Both because I wanted to make a difference and because I wanted steady work, I looked around for what I wanted to do. I decided I wanted to go into the environmental field so I took prerequisite science courses at Northeastern University and other colleges. The environmental science field is still growing and there is great opportunity to work on cutting edge research. I love working in a lab and believe that every step we take towards understanding the changes our planet is undergoing is important.
