Meet Jess Huynh, geologist and museologist

"My first true experience with the outdoors was in high school during an overnight camping trip. Growing up in a Chinese household, my parents never went camping or hiking so that trip really changed my life. I fell in love with nature and ended up getting a B.S in Geology at UCLA. I’m currently pursuing my M.A. in Museology at UW because I want to channel that excitement and passion for geology into the museum world to share with others. While museums have historically been institutions instilled in white privilege and exclusivity as well, I hope to bring some diversity to both fields that are near and dear to me! 😊”
