1997 Major: Biology and History; 2020 MEM Coastal Environmental Management
"Although my actual degree is in history, I did all the coursework for a biology degree with a concentration in marine biology. My courses and semester at the Marine Lab in Beaufort have given me a strong background in the basics of marine biology, which has helped me greatly in my career. More importantly, though, my undergraduate classes helped develop a scientific and analytical mindset, which arguably more than the information itself, has been very helpful."
"Don't constrain yourself in what you might consider after undergraduate or graduate school. I have ended up working for 22 rewarding years in a field - wastewater - that I knew nothing about initially and didn't even cross my mind as a possibility when I was in school."
