Sierra is a Cultural and Heritage Resource Management student from Florida. She attended the University of Florida for her undergrad in Anthropology. Sierra completed two field schools during her time at UF. One in Horseshoe beach, Florida on a Weedon Island site, and the second in Ethiopia, were she learned about using a total station and handheld and working with archaeologists from other cultures. Besides prehistoric archaeology, Sierra is also interested in museum studies. She volunteered for over two years at the Florida Museum of Natural History, working under the collections manager. She also volunteered at the Silver River Museum in Ocala, giving tours to school kids and working on exhibits. Sierra currently works for SouthArc (Commonwealth's recently acquired Florida office) as a field tech, crew chief, report writer, and cataloger. Through the CHRM program at the University of Maryland, Sierra hopes to gain more knowledge about protecting our cultural resources and how to work and be successful in CRM. Outside of school and archaeology, Sierra enjoys reading for fun, kayaking, swimming, fishing, and arts and crafts.
