What is your name?

Katja Pierce

Are you named after anything?

I’m named after my great grandmother on my mom’s side!

What did you study in school and what do you wish to do in the future?

I’m currently an Animal Science major at Texas A&M University and I’m aiming to attend veterinary school in the near future to become an exotic small animal veterinarian.

Why did you join STEM-VRSE?

I was asked to attend one of the very first meetings and loved the idea and I’ve been here ever since!

You have been with STEM-VRSE since the beginning, what’s your favorite memory with STEM-VRSE?

All of the fun adventures in New Zealand were great, but what I’ll always remember is jumping off a bridge into a river with Kat, Clint, and Dakota.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a veterinarian so I guess I haven’t changed much!

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I’m not the biggest fan of traveling but I’d love to visit a rainforest someday or go high into the mountains somewhere one day.

Why has it taken so long to get you in the spotlight?

I don’t love talking about myself and I’d much rather hear about everyone else! I love getting to know people and playing ‘20 Questions’ with them.
