Catherine is a third-year student at the University of Iowa, where she studies Geography on an Environmental Studies track, as well as Studio Art. She has always loved nature, and in college she became especially drawn to the intersections of human interaction and the environment, understood through a geographic lens. She is involved with the Iowa City Integrated Geography Organization, where she helps create GIS resources for local communities. As a current AGS Scholar-Intern, Catherine looks forward to developing her writing skills and expanding accessibility to geographical information. She can be found taking photos, hanging out at the rock climbing wall, or trying to find the best chai latte that Iowa City has to offer.
