Job title: aquatic field technician

Job Responsibilities

How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?
 
Dickinson prepared me to stand up for what I believe in and to not let my voice go unheard. I think this is one of the most important things I will take from my time at Dickinson. I learned to voice my opinion, but also to listen to others' opinions intently because you can learn so much from your peers. I also think I am now prepared to look challenges in the face and work towards overcoming them. For example, having taken organic chemistry and come out the other side, hard work can get you through a lot as long as you are prepared to dedicate yourself to getting to the end of the tunnel.
   
What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?
 
I am incredibly excited to see where my life takes me, at this point I still don't know exactly what I want to do so I am looking forward to all of the experiences I will have that will lead me to a field I will continue with for my career.
 
What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

One of the most defining moments of my time at Dickinson was during my fall semester of junior year when I realized I wanted to be a field biologist in the ecology field. This realization came to me when I was taking a class on invasive species with Visiting Instructor of Biology Gene Wingert, and I loved every lab session we had because I was truly enjoying what we were doing. Until I took that class, I had no idea what I wanted to do within my major. After that I tailored my courses to field biology, and I could not be happier with the direction my life is going now.
   
Another defining moment was, of course, studying abroad, that experience truly taught me that I could handle so much more than I ever thought I could. From navigating a new city to speaking a second language, I was challenged constantly but I found myself rising to each challenge put in front of me, and those were the moments I realized what I was capable of. I'm not sure I would have the confidence in myself I have today without this experience.
 
Internship Experience
 
I worked as a research and education intern at the Blue Ocean Society in Portsmouth, N.H. during the summer of 2018. I worked closely with other interns to collect data on the location and behavior of whales in the Gulf of Maine aboard whale watching ships. I also worked to educate people on board the ships as well as those that visited the discovery center which had small aquariums with other native species. Lastly, I helped conduct beach cleanups along the New Hampshire coast which took advantage of citizen science.

Job Responsibilities

How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?
 
I believe Dickinson has prepared me for life beyond graduation. A Dickinson education encourages critical thinking. It encourages one to question and maintain curiosity.
 
What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?
 
I am anticipating continuing to grow past my Dickinson experience, staying in touch with the numerous people I have formed a relationship with and to continue challenging myself every day.
 
What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?
 
Getting the chance to participate in student faculty research, focusing on Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Also, being part of the Dickinson Women's Soccer program, and being a two-year captain. We evolved our culture to something amazing, and our run to the NCAA tournament is something I will never forget.
