Mentors: Greg Tucker and Katy Barnhar, CIRES/Department of Geological Sciences at CU

Bio: Keely was born in Southern California, where she spent her childhood years before living in various places throughout Southern Appalachia. After completing a buckskinning apprenticeship outside of Asheville, North Carolina, she moved to beautiful Boulder, Colorado, at the end of 2017. In her free time, Keely enjoys learning primitive skills, reading, trail running, hiking, going to operas and exploring new cities and towns.

Keely is currently enrolled in Front Range Community College. In Fall 2019, she will be attending CU Boulder, where she will work towards her bachelor’s degree in Geology. Keely’s ultimate goal is a career in research as a professor, and plans to pursue a PhD related to natural hazards directly following her graduation.
