Carolynn Turneur, is a junior at the University of Central Florida with a study in Biology on the track for Pre-med. She is very passionate about helping others, and creating a difference in some way to people’s lives, through the powerful tool of science. As she states, “Before working with the Citizen Science GIS Team here at UCF, I had no idea what GIS meant and how powerful it was. Being able to learn how to create maps and web applications with the use of drones, have taught me how to analyze real-world situations, and how to go about conducting my own research relating to healthcare in low-income areas. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of a team that is fun, community-oriented, adventurous and most of all deeply committed to bringing GIS to a higher standing in our community, to our lives, and throughout the world”.
