B.A. in Anthropology, Colorado State University
Dr. Ann Magennis
I am currently a 9-1-1 operator in Jefferson County while I take a few years to decide what I want to do in graduate school. Ideally, I want to be a Forensic Anthropologist when I grow up!
Note to Current Students
The Capstone Symposium was definitely a very valuable experience for me, through the whole process of collecting and analyzing research to creating this argument, to presenting in front of other knowledgeable anthropologists in the field. Dr. Connie Fellmann also directed me towards a Forensic Anthropology Field School during the summer of 2016 in Massachusetts, and it was very cool to go through a "pseudo" crime scene and seeing what my dream job would really be like. We got to do a complete excavation, evidence collection and chain of custody, laboratory analysis of remains and evidence, as well as creating a full report that would be turned into the county if it were a real death. It was such a wonderful opportunity to get to experience all of that!
