A student in the Master of Environment and Natural Resources (MENR) professional degree program, Christine joins the MENR program to focus her studies on policy and law as it relates to sustainable fisheries. This summer she completed an Ohio Environmental Council sponsored internship with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The internship focused on the Scenic Rivers program, macroinvertebrate surveys, public outreach, and volunteer education. She previously volunteered with the Ohio Wildlife Center and the Ohio Bluebird Society. Prior to starting the MENR program, she was an Assistant Store Manager for Walgreens and holds an English degree from The Ohio State University. One day, she will cage dive with white sharks, but until then, her pinnacle experiences are swimming with whale sharks and mantas the past couple years.
