Underway-Core Lab Technician

Education: 
Texas A&M University College Station, Texas
Majors: 
Biology
IODP Experience: 
I am currently the Underway Tech/Core Lab technician. I have gone on 3 expeditions, 2 transits, 1 year in Singapore during re-fit. I started out at ODP as the “front desk girl” 7 years ago as a student worker. After I graduated, they needed someone to sail last-minute. I sailed on Exp 307, loved it, and moved over to the technical staff.
Interests: 
On ship I like going to the gym or watching movies, catching sunsets when they happen. Off ship I make stained glass, like to hike and travel. I loved the “wind surfing” we did as we transited from the last site.
