2022 TA for all sections: Shaela Noble
Hello everyone! My name is Shaela Noble and I am a second year MS graduate student in the Environmental Policy and Management graduate program. I am originally from Mesa, Arizona and attended Arizona State University for my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry. While there, I worked in a few different research labs, got to do some field work in Yellowstone National Park, and spent a lot of time mentoring and tutoring other students. After graduation, I worked as a lab technician and chemist, but wanted to use my scientific skills in a more people-focused and interdisciplinary setting, so returned to UC Davis for graduate school. Since returning to school, I have worked as an Intern within Napa County's Environmental Services Department and now work as a Water Resources Intern at Stantec. In both positions I have had the opportunity to learn about groundwater management within California and how environmental policy decisions impact communities differently across the state. Aside from school and work, I love to take care of my house plants, hang out with my two cats, and explore the Sacramento area!
