Susan E. Matthews is trading the hills of New Hampshire for New York City, as she comes to SHERP straight after graduating from Dartmouth College. As an environmental studies major, she worked in a biogeochemistry lab and traveled through southern Africa. She found her true passion, however, in writing for and ultimately being editor-in-chief of Dartmouth's daily paper. SHERP provides a lovely solution to bridging her two interests, and she can't wait to get back to the reporting side of journalism. Follow her on Twitter @_susanematthews
