Hello, my name is Courtney and I’m a junior undergrad. This is my first year at the University of Washington, having previously received my Associates in anthropology from Olympic College. I am majoring in archaeology and minoring in history. I worked for many years in jobs I didn’t really enjoy before making the decision to pursue an education in disciplines that actually excited and challenged me. My particular areas of academic interest are the Roman occupation of Britain, Neolithic settlements of Scotland, and the study of European medieval society. Love of museums and artifact preservation has me leaning towards graduate work in museology.
My hobbies include traveling and experiencing new places, binge watching over-the-top costume dramas (despite their blatant historical inaccuracies), and trying to keep my book hoarding under control. Currently, I am on a mission to find the perfect, most unique Eggs Benedict in Seattle so as to justify my brunch obsession with a goal-oriented purpose.
