First year graduate student, Anna Harris, is originally from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, but now calls Southeast Alaska home. After graduating from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a bachelor’s degree in Geoscience, she moved to Prince of Wales Island as a Karst Technician for the U.S. Forest Service. The caving life revealed itself to Anna as an undergraduate during a GeoCorps funded summer internship at El Capitan Cave. The interaction between land management and karst terrains, specifically in the Tongass National Forest, continues to capture her passion for the environment and serve as the focus for her research. Anna considers herself a rock hound, with never enough room to pack newfound rocks when she travels – although flat rate boxes have become her new best friend! If she isn’t picking up rocks or caving, you can catch her on roller skates or doing yoga. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
