Amy is a sophomore political science and environmental studies double major at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln with a minor in German. She grew up in Aurora NE where she spent her early years exploring her backyard collecting soil and water “samples” for her science kit and facilitating her fascination with nature. She grew up taking field trips to the Platte river and spending every possible second of summer in the water of various lakes and rivers around Nebraska. Amy has always felt at home in the outdoors and currently enjoys hiking, climbing, skiing, and scuba diving. She hopes to bring a unique perspective into the conservation conversation and showcase the importance of our water systems.
