ESA Student Section Vice Chair/Chair
As Vice Chair, my primary goal is to learn as much as possible about the Student Section and its role within ESA. I am excited to work with the other Student-section officers on current projects and priorities. I also hope to begin laying the foundation for accomplishing two objectives over the next two years. First, I plan to work with ESA leadership to develop new programs that a) help students successfully transition to fulfilling ecological careers and b) increase student participation in ESA’s Earth Stewardship initiative. Secondly, I want interaction between the Student Section and ESA students to become more collaborative and regular. This will include conducting annual surveys to identify issues of importance to ESA students and developing resources, such as newsletters and webinars, which are useful to students throughout the year.
