Alumni Spotlights: Isabel Eaton '15

Bishop family ties last forever, so we like to follow where life takes our graduates. For young alumnae and recent graduate of the College of William & Mary Isabel Eaton ’15, she recently settled in to her summer digs in Fairbanks, Alaska. She is conducting biological field research for NEON—The National Ecological Observatory Network, a $430 million project dedicated to understanding how changes in climate, land use and invasive species impact ecology. Her day-to-day work in Fairbanks requires long hours bushwhacking to remote plots to retrieve data. Soon she’ll be heading to a research station in Toolik in the Brooks range––the northernmost mountains in North America.
