Sarah has always had a love for the natural world and the animals that inhabit it. She went to Utah State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management with a Fisheries Science minor. While attending college, she was able to participate in many surveys, pushing her towards her future careers. She has worked for the State of Utah under their Wildlife Resources department studying the Critically Endangered June Sucker as well as the native Cutthroat Trout. She then moved to work for the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium as their first- ever female Life Support Technician. By receiving this grant, she aims to face new challenges, push new boundaries, and show what women can do in male-dominated industries.
