Student Spotlight: Dominque Ashe
Dominique is a San Francisco-born nature lover who came to CSU for its environmental programs. After exploring three majors, she settled in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources. Her journey in water began when she spontaneously took a graduate level course taught by CoWC Director Reagan Waskom her sophomore year, which furthered her desire to engage in water management. She promptly added the SWIM minor to her portfolio, delving into the world and professions of its sustainable uses. For her senior project, Dominique worked with the local Peaks to People Water Fund to highlight their collaborative public engagement efforts across Fort Collins’ companies, community members, and resource agencies. Dominique graduated in May and hopes to attend graduate school in public administration or environmental law in the next few years. Until then, she continues gaining experience in water management and sustainability consulting around the Front Range.
