Travel Latina would like to introduce a new “Science Series” with collaborator Michele Tracy. The following articles will take us along the adventures of a Latina in science and the journey of discovering how it is possible to travel by studying or working in science. These articles will teach you a couple of simple geologic terms while also exploring the importance of WOC in STEM. Michele is a geologist who received her undergrad education at the University of Michigan and who shares a passion for climate and ocean science.
Michele, who is Colombian-American, majored in Earth Sciences after a childhood of spelunking and rock collecting in the United States, México, and Colombia. She currently works as a Geoscience Technician in California and dreams of getting a PHd in Climate Science while also traveling the world. Follow her on Instagram as @michcata89 if you want to see her adventures with the cutest dog ever named Penny and her little red Jeep named Thalia.
