School: Boise State University
Major: Forensic Chemistry and Criminal Justice
Hometown: Idaho City, Idaho

I applied for the STEP position after seeing a job announcement at Boise State University.


The experience has been good. My coworkers at the labs are amazing.


I have been trained to test water samples for bacteria, ammonia, and chlorophyll. In the future, I will be trained to conduct several other tests.


After I get my undergrad degrees in Forensic Chemistry and Criminal Justice, I want to attend grad school in California. This will, hopefully, lead to a career in crime scene investigation.
