My name is Eleanor Smith, I am currently a senior majoring in Environmental Science in the Earth System Sciences pathway at UW Bothell. I grew up in Vancouver, Washington and have lived in the Seattle area since 2013. I have an Associates in Arts from Clark College, and an Associates in Science from North Seattle College. Prior to this year, I worked at REI as a footwear and fitness specialist, and became more in tune with the opportunities for getting outside that the region has to offer. Currently, I am working with the UW Bothell Geodatabase Group which is a team is built for undergraduate research, centered on mapping the ecological aspects of the UWB/CC wetlands. Through this project, I was introduced to Friends of North Creek Forest, as a student volunteer to help map the invasive species in North Creek Forest. These opportunities have allowed me to meet and work with excellent faculty, students, volunteers, and other outdoor enthusiasts, but also have strengthened my ability as a team member as well as team leader. As the research coordinator intern, I am able to put my best practices in communication and team work to use. My hobbies include running, yoga, hiking, and after graduating I plan on revisiting my old favorite, snowboarding.
