Michelle Henry

Class of 2010-2011

About Michelle

as of 2/2010: Michelle Henry is a fourth year at the University of Virginia, graduating in May with a BS and MA in Environmental Sciences. Throughout her undergraduate experience, she has been committed to community service, both within her local community and abroad. Teaching English and environmental conservation in Chile, Belize, Nicaragua, and Thailand helped shape her desire to pursue a career in sustainable energy. A co-op at PECO Energy in Philadelphia solidified her interest in the energy industry as she had a chance to examine the environmental implications surrounding each type of electricity generation from coal to nuclear. After completing two research projects concerning land use and diet in South Africa, Michelle hopes to continue conducting research abroad in an effort to find technologies that can turn waste into energy through biofuels.
