I graduated from Stockton University in December, 2014 with a BS in Environmental Science with Program Distinction. I am now a Superfund Remedial Project Manager for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Stockton's Environmental Track prepared me for this opportunity through their knowledgeable professors, who facilitated professional and personal growth through challenging courses and field experiences. The two courses that best prepared me for the opportunity to work for the USEPA were "Remediation and Biotechnology" and "Environmental Pollution and Regulation", both taught by Dr. Tait Chirenje. The course material is directly related to my job, which made me highly qualified for the position. I also worked with Dr. Chirenje on an independent study researching the indoor air quality of NJ hotels as part of the NJDEP Garden State Green Hotels Project. Through my coursework, projects, field experience, and guidance from extraordinary professors, I would say Stockton University well prepared me for my new career at the USEPA.

I had the opportunity to join Dr. Chirenje's NW/SW Field Experience as well, where I learned about environmental issues in our country first-hand, and the course completely changed my life.
