Crystal Romeo entered the field of environmental science through a natural progression. She developed a love of nature and animals while farming with her grandparents in the countryside of Trinidad. In high school, she had a mentor in an environmental program, and at Spelman realized her passion for environmental protection.
A 2006 Spelman graduate, with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and studies, Romeo is enrolled in the department of environmental science and technology at the University of Maryland, College Park. In 2015, she will receive a doctorate in environmental science specializing in estuarine-environmental sciences.
