Brielle Herrin

UW Earth & Space Sciences Geology BS

"I’m looking forward to sharing significant aspects of supporting aspiring geoscientists in various ways. I’ve had great experiences curating my own space and community in this career starting from scratch. In doing so, I’ve learned more and more about everything this science has to offer that is not always understood. I have been motivated in this field for my own reasons but I’ve also been inspired by the geo-community around me in fundamental ways. I hope to shed light on my personal journey through this field and what the power of collaborating in geology has done for the trajectory of my career."
