B.A. in Anthropology, Colorado State University
Dr. Jason LaBelle
Currently, I am working as an archaeologist.
Note to Current Students
When I came to Colorado State University in the fall of 2011, I was chosen to work with the Center for Mountain and Plains Archaeology (CMPA) through the Honors Undergraduate Research Scholars program. Under the supervision of Dr. Jason LaBelle, I participated in high elevation archaeology projects on Rollins Pass and was a crew member at Chimney Hollow Open Space, Roberts Ranch, and Fossil Creek Wetlands Area. When I was not in the field, I could usually be found in the basement of Clark – A wing collecting data in the CMPA Archaeological Repository. I often joked that I lived in the laboratory, and at times this statement wasn’t far from the truth, but I was driven by the prospect of discovery and learning. I love what I do and I would like to recognize the people who have inspired me to pursue a career in archaeology. First, I would like to thank my advisor, Dr. Jason LaBelle, for challenging me academically and supporting my research efforts over the past four years. Dr. LaBelle made my time at CSU meaningful and I know the experiences I have working with him will stay with me throughout my life. I would also like to thank Dr. Richard Adams, whose mentorship has given me the confidence to dream big. Thank you for always believing in me. Last, I would like to thank my peers in the Department of Anthropology for their friendship and encouragement.
