Juan Garcia


Mentors:  Chris Ray and Rachel Billings

Bio: Juan Garcia recently completed his studies in Biology at the Community College of Denver and is set to join the Ecology and Evolutionary Science program at CU Boulder this fall! His aspiration is to contribute to Conservation Ecology, whether in a lab setting or out in the field.

Beyond academics, Juan finds joy in long thru-hikes, bouldering, and any outdoor pursuit. His relocation from Austin to Denver was driven by a desire to be closer to the mountains.

As a first-generation college student, Juan grappled with uncertainty regarding his career path. However, his passion for outdoor activities ultimately steered him towards an environmental career. This passion has instilled in him a profound sense of responsibility towards safeguarding the planet, a commitment he carries with him every day.
