Campus Garden Assistant
Brianna Shea is a sophomore majoring in Environmental Science with a concentration in Environmental Health and a minor in sustainability. This year she is secretary of National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), a Blue Devil Ambassador, and a volunteer member of the fall 2015 Career Conference Executive Committee. In her free time she enjoys biking, cooking, Blink 182, and all things HGTV and DIY. She finds that even the choices that basic cable provides her with are overwhelming, so she literally only watches HGTV.
Highly anticipating a four year graduation, Brianna hopes to land a job that will keep her on her feet with minimal repetition and involve plenty of lab and fieldwork. Specifically, she has no idea know what she wants to do after Stout, I’m sure if she did have the answer to that it would just change again in the next few years. All she knows about her future is that she wants to end up doing something she loves that can make a difference for people and their surrounding environment.
