February 5th: Martha Gebhardt
My name is Martha Gebhardt and I am 25 years old. After studying Genetics at The University of Georgia for my undergraduate degree I joined the Peace Corps as a rural health educator in Morocco. My village was on the northern
border of the Western Sahara. Currently I am in
graduate school studying Natural Resource Studies with a focus on soil bacterial and fungi communities at The University of Arizona. I am also working with Ironwood Tree Experience as a Community Outreach Coordinator helping communities initiate projects in their neighborhoods’. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, running, and cooking.
