My Educational Background

I am currently enrolled in a dual degree program in which I intend to obtain 2 separate undergraduate degrees. One degree will be a B.S. in Environmental Sciences from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and the other will be a B.S. in Civil Engineering from North Carolina State University. I anticipate graduating from both institutions in 2018.

Additional Information

I chose to pursue a degree in Environmental Sciences because I have always been interested in the environmental issues our society faces, and further more, how to remediate the issues. Once I learned about water quality degradation and many other issues, I decided to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering so that I could obtain the skills necessary to design different methods used to minimize environmental impacts. Through the duration of my studies, I have become quite interested in urban design and the design of our public spaces such as parks, and the associated impacts these areas can have on water quality. My intention is study and design methods to reduce stormwater and the associated pollution by implementing various stormwater control measures and best management practices in our public spaces.
