My name is Brianna Cheek and I am from Vancouver, WA. I am 20 years old. I have always wanted to travel but could never find the funds or time to do it. The Christmas of 2009, my cousin came down from Alaska with crazy talk of working in the forest and being a wilderness ranger. I took his computer and looked up everything I could about getting into the field of conservation. The most accredited source seemed to be the SCA. I signed up for every thing that interested me…over a hundred internships. Trail work seemed to be my way in. From here, I plan and re-plan my future and would love to do more internship's and become a crew leader with the experience I gain. However, as for long term, I hope to be in one of the regional offices in administration assisting the company’s expansion.
