Rebecca Stimson

Major: Environmental Policy and Planning

Expected Graduation Date: May 2016

  • Minor: Professional and Technical Writing

I am a senior graduating in May 2016 with a B.S in Environmental Policy and Planning and a minor in Professional and Technical Writing. My passion for the environment began when I was growing up – as part of a military family I moved from place to place overseas and was able to see how different countries handled environmental practices such as recycling, alternative transportation, and land management. I enjoy being in a major that allows me to apply my life experiences and classroom knowledge to solve difficult real-world problems. This past summer, I interned with the Natural Resources Permitting Department at Columbia Pipeline Group in Charleston, West Virginia. During this internship, I did everything from use the company Habitat Conservation Plan to participate in environmental inspections. My ideal career would be helping companies stay in compliance with environmental regulations, and then implementing new ways for them to go above and beyond standard compliance to become more environmentally sustainable.
