Carrie Seltzer '04

Carrie _seltzerCarrie Seltzer '04 majored in Biology. As a student, she studied abroad in the Galapagos and Kenya, worked at the Joseph Moore Museum, served as a member of barn staff at the EC Stables, played frisbee, and choreographed and danced in Dance Alloy.

She completed her PhD in Biological Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2013 on the topic of seed dispersal ecology in Tanzania (inspired by her time abroad in Kenya). Now works for iNaturalist, a biodiversity citizen science platform which is a joint initiative of the California Academy of Sciences and the National Geographic Society.

The opportunities she had at Earlham helped her develop leadership skills and confidence in many different settings.

She lives in Washington, DC, with her husband Matt Grosso '04 and daughter Natalie (born in 2013).
