Courtney Richenbacher

Hello! My name is Courtney Richenbacher and I am from Iowa City, Iowa. I received my undergraduate degree in geoscience from the University of Iowa this past spring.

My last year of undergrad I added a certificate in museum studies and devoted that last year to earning that certificate and loved every minute of it.

I have always loved museums, and frequent them on practically every family vacation, and it only felt right to work in one. I am hoping to work in collections but I am open to other museum opportunities.

I am also taking classes to earn a zoo and aquarium studies certificate to supplement my master's degree and hope to work at either a natural history museum or a zoo or aquarium.
