In Summer 2022, I interned at Environmental Science Associates (ESA) under the Community Development team with a focus on air quality and noise. At ESA, I wrote and assessed environmental impact reports for air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and noise.
Eventually, I started taking on projects independently, including the Whittier Narrows Recreational Study prepared for the for the Sanitation District of LA County. Based on field research that had already been conducted, I analyzed data and wrote a report on the Whittier Narrows Recreational Study. I saw this report through from start to finish. I worked with stakeholders from the Biological Resources team at ESA and the Sanitation District of LA County. I also worked with my supervisor to iterate on the report and make changes based on feedback.
