Barbara Ann "Annie"
I have always been interested in wildlife and the outdoors, so it was no problem figuring out what I wanted to do for my career. After looking at a few other colleges I decided to take a tour of the DCB campus. By the time we were halfway done I knew this is where I wanted to go.
