CES M.S. graduate accepts position at U.S. EPA
December 13, 2018
Positions with the United States Environmental Protection Agency are always coveted, and often very hard to land. Meet Lindsey Hendrick, the U.S. EPA’s newest biologist, and recent Virginia Commonwealth University graduate.
Hendrick received her Master of Science from the Center for Environmental Studies in spring 2018. Her travels to Panama to study the prothonotary warbler as part of Dr. Catherine Viverette’s “Team Warbler”, and her participation in Dr. Daniel McGarvey’s Inforgraphics class provided Hendricks different experiential learning opportunities to complement her already impressive educational resume.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Hendrick is assigned to the Science Information and Analysis Branch of the Biological and Economic Analysis Division, which is a part of the Office of Pesticide Programs. This particular branch is responsible for monitoring pesticide use and usage analysis. As an EPA biologist, she will be assessing the quality of data submitted by organizations that have applied to register a pesticide with the EPA. Once the analysis is complete, the data will be used for risk assessment.
