I learned to love science in 7th grade because it was in that class that I did my first dissections and conducted my first chemical experiments. I WAS FASCINATED! Since then, I was determined to learn how systems functioned and these interests led me to pursue degrees in Biology and Natural Resources Development. I have been able to apply what I learned in school to the water conservation work I do at the EAA. Water saving strategies are improving and understanding how new strategies work allow the EAA to continue its mission in protecting the Edwards Aquifer as a habitat and viable drinking source.
