Specific accomplishments of which you are most proud

I am proud that I completed my masters program in a timely manner. I went to graduate school because I wanted to make the transition from lab work to field/consulting work, and I have made major progress towards accomplishing that goal.

Geography or GISc activities and/or accomplishments, awards, internships, publications

I did a paid GIS summer internship with the EPA in summer of 2014. For me working for the US Environmental Protection Agency for the summer and graduating with my masters was a big accomplishment.

Overall assessment of how Lehman’s EEGS Program prepared you for your current life

 Lehman's EEGS Program has prepared me for my current life by getting me more opportunities/opening more doors than I had before I started the program. I remember going to talk to Prof. Maantay and telling her that I wanted to do field work and she said that I would be able to do it. Fast forward about 3 years and here I am doing field work.

Comments on the EEGS Dept Program you were enrolled in

I enjoyed going to class, the classes were fun and informative, and I liked the fact that they had end of semester final projects, even though they were sometimes stressful. I liked the way the MS-GISc program is structured and the fact that they are available to answer emails in a timely manner.
