Science & the Environment

Meet Your Career Coach

Welcome to the Science and Environment Career Community! Science isn’t just about finding answers, but also asking good questions. I help students interested in careers related to science and the environment explore questions about their interests and potential career paths, identify and communicate their unique strengths, find relevant internships and job postings, and pursue a life after Earlham that they find meaningful.

When I’m not in the office, you can usually find me spending time with my family; roasting coffee; or getting pulled around a new hiking trail my two dogs, Mulder and Blue.

If you are exploring careers, looking for internship opportunities, creating a resume, cv or cover letter, or preparing for your job search- let’s talk! Book an appointment with me through Handshake, or stop by my office at LBC 111.
