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.

  1. Welcome Hallie! We are members of the WYSGA and would be glad for you to visit our ranch and look around and learn. We can maybe even find some cheatgrass for you to commune with! Sharon S. O’Toole, Ladder Ranch
