Student Spotlight *Maddie Brillhart*

May. 30, 2024

Hi, I'm Maddie Brillhart. I just finished my first year at Heidelberg University studying Environmental Science and playing on the women's soccer team. I chose to work at the Tilmon lab because I wanted to continue to follow my passion for environmental science into the summer months. I love learning about new aspects of environmental science and how many career paths I could take in the future. I grew up on a small family farm, so agriculture has always been a huge part of my life. To see all the "behind-the-scenes" of agriculture paired with entomology has been very interesting. I am especially interested in environmental consulting or invasive species work as a future career. The Tilmon lab has been a great opportunity and I can't wait to try so many new things while I'm here!
