Hi. My name is Kelsey Lindbloom. I am a junior at Salida High School in Salida, Colorado and I am the Adolph Coors Foundation Scholar for FSI 2014 as well as the Bacon Family Foundation Research Scholar. In my high school, I am the treasurer of the National Honor Society and the secretary of the Junior Class Student Council. Outside of school, I am the secretary of my 4-H club as well as a representative to the Chaffee County 4-H Council. In my spare time, I enjoy training horses and volunteering at my local animal shelter where I am learning the skills necessary to become a veterinarian.
My Experience at FSI
Science has always been a major part of my life. I grew up performing science experiments in my kitchen. I had worked for a few years in a hospital lab and was excited to have the chance to learn even more about science at FSI. I have always loved biology, so when I was assigned to a project researching the shifting of proteins in cow cells, I could hardly wait. Through this experience I learned so much about biological research under the tutelage of Dr. Burns, Mr. Graham. and Ms. Plewes. I can't stress enough how much this experience has shaped me as a person and helped define my life's path.
