Welcome to our Invasive Species Intern!

My name is Hallie Jette. I am a super senior at the University of Wyoming, and the Invasive Species Intern for the Wyoming Stock Growers Association for the summer. I am majoring in Environment and Natural Resources with a concurrent in Energy, Land, and Water Management, and minors in Agroecology, and Rangeland Ecology and Watershed Management. This is my fourth major, and I plan for it to be my last major. I am finally studying something I love. I have two to three more years left on my undergrad. If I had just listened to my mom four years ago when she suggested I major in ENR, I would have graduated by now. Moms are always right. I am from Buffalo, WY, and have a German Shorthair puppy named Kona who shares the same birthday as me. She’ll be 2 years in August. 2 years isn’t really puppy age anymore, but she still has a lot of puppy energy.
I first found my passion for learning about invasive weeds when I started working for Johnson County Weed and Pest in the summer of 2018. I knew next to nothing about invasive weeds when I started. Since then, I have found a love and a passion for invasive weeds, leafy spurge being my favorite invasive weed to learn about. Once I graduate, I hope to work with invasive species.
This summer I hope to learn more about everyday ranch operations. I’m in a bit of the same predicament as I was in 2018. I don’t know much about ranching, but I am willing and excited to learn. Admittedly, I know a little bit more about ranching than I did about invasive weeds when I started at Weed and Pest. I am excited about this internship and to see what’s in store for me this summer. I know it’s going to be a very busy but fulfilling summer.
