My name is Frank Marrone, and I am a recent graduate of Boston College with degrees in biology & applied psychology and human development. I’ve always been extremely interested in the connection between humans and wildlife, and was drawn to the MCM program due to its interdisciplinary nature that explores conservation through an array of different lenses. During my undergraduate career, I was able to intern at a local wildlife rehabilitation facility, a sea turtle rescue center, the New England Aquarium, and even with a yellow-eyed penguin conservation group in New Zealand. All of these experiences have solidified that a future in the field of wildlife veterinary medicine is where my passions lie. Besides working with animals, during my undergrad career I was involved in an a cappella group for all four years, and also became super interested in career development and resumé/cover letter writing after working as a peer career coach in my campus’s career center (connect with me on LinkedIn!). I’m looking forward to this different, yet very exciting year of the MCM program.
