Eliza is a temporary Water Resources Data Technician working within the Waters and Critical Materials divisions. Eliza has been working with WVWRI since May 2021; initially, a student worker focused on Waters and Outreach materials. Her current duties include data upload, developing outreach materials, and water sampling. In May 2022, Eliza graduated from West Virginia University, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. Eliza grew up in Parkersburg, WV, where water quality issues first piqued her interest, further driven by the movie Dark Waters (2019), a true story focusing on their hometown. WVWRI is not their first taste of waters experience, and has previously interned for the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge (Williamstown, WV).
