Master of Environmental Studies

Graduate Program on the Environment Recruitment Assistant

Anna Rhoads, MES student assistantWelcome to Evergreen! I am a 2nd year MES student and am working part-time as a recruitment assistant for the program. I have my bachelor's in Environmental Science, policy from Humboldt State University, nestled among Northern California’s ancient redwood forests. It was a smooth transition moving to Olympia, Washington from California. 

So far, my MES experience has been quite a ride! I've met some incredible people, biked to Portland with other MES'ers to attend a higher education sustainability conference, became a certified interpretive guide (and received graduate credit!), and had an internship with a transportation management association in Tacoma!  

Environmental topics that interest me are environmental education, social marketing and outreach, transportation policy, and active transportation. 

When I’m not in class or working, I love to cycle, attempt to bake gluten-free treats, and travel. Feel free to stop by my office (Lab 1 Room 3019) anytime to say hi!
