Catrin Sunstone, 2017 NOAA Hollings Scholarship Winner

Cat Sunstone is a native of the West Coast who, after exploring the shores of Maui for two years, followed a love for the mountains to Colorado State University. She is a junior in the natural resources management program with a minor in sociology.

Cat recently discovered a passion for natural resource policy that has been opening amazing new opportunities for her in coastal and marine management where she will be able to help protect both our natural resources and the communities who depend upon them.

When Cat isn't studying or daydreaming about the ocean, she can be found volunteering at a local music festival, practicing yoga, or enjoying the beautiful Colorado weather while on an adventure with her pup.
