Boozhoo and hello! My name is Vanessa and I am from Anchorage, Alaska. I am Chippewa Cree of the Rocky Boy Tribe of Montana. I’m a senior at Stanford studying Mechanical Engineering and am interning with the Juneau Icefield Research Program this summer studying glaciers. I’m interested in the intersection between engineering and climate science and am excited for new experiences this summer.
I enjoy hiking and skiing with my two dogs. I love to cook meals for my friends and family. I’m excited to represent Indian Country in all that I do!
