My name is Jessica Horton and I am a first year college student in the middle of my second semester at Humboldt State University working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Resource Engineering. I was born in Salem, Oregon where I lived for nine years and moved to San Diego, California where I remained for the rest of my years. Growing up in Oregon, I developed a deep interest in the outdoors, prompting me to pursue an environmental career. I have completed General Chemistry I, Geospatial Concepts and am in progress of General Chemistry II, Calculus I, and Intro to Environmental Engineering. I have attended the ACS National Meeting in San Diego, where I took part in chemistry workshops to further my chemistry experience. I plan to acquire internships and summer research jobs relating to my career field, and have an idea of working in professional research jobs once I graduate and become a licensed engineer.
