Mary Sanders (cont.)
Mary graduated from CSU in 1997 with a degree in Natural Resources Management and a minor in Economic.  She worked for the State of Colorado as a field biologist for 6 months and then moved to Aspen, CO.  There she did "a lot of skiing", and a variety of jobs including person chef,  teaching yoga, and working for the 10th Mountain Hut Association.  She lived there "until I got bored" .  During this time her interest started to change from public lands policy to health policy.  She returned to CSU in fall 03 and started taking chemistry and biology classes to prepare to apply to graduate school in public health.  Cell Biology and Gen Micro were highlights and encouraged her to seek research experience in a similar field.  She contacted Dr. Brennan about a research for credit position he had and he hired her full time to work with the Leprosy group.  After working in the lab for 6 months, Dr. Brennan encouraged her to apply for Graduate School and continue working in his lab.  She has enjoyed the work and loves the people she works with!  She looks forward to using her previous experience and knowledge she will gain in her PhD program to have a career in international public health.
