WiSys Ambassador | UW-Green Bay

I am so thankful for my experience as a WiSys Ambassador!

My post-graduation plans include seeking employment in the environmental policy and law field, but first I am spending the summer in Australia working as a cross country ski coach.  In the long term, I plan to continue onto to further graduate school to pursue a career in research and teaching.

This spring I completed five years at University of Wisconsin- Bay, with a Master’s of Environmental Science and Policy and Bachelors of Science in Environmental Policy and Planning with minors in Environmental Science and Political Science. During my undergrad I also earned a certificate in Environmental Sustainability and Business through the Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI).

Joining the WiSys team in 2016 opened up my mind to new perspectives and opportunities. For example, many of the speaker’s and idea pitch competitions held at UWGB displayed inspiration for thinking outside of the box and that an anything is possible attitude can get you far. One of my central mission’s as an ambassador was to encourage and support student involvement in research. From first hand experience I learned the value of research and the domino effect of positive consequences that follow developing and presenting research. My greatest advice that I have gained from WiSys is to put yourself out there, work hard, and good things will come.
