Kellie MacPhee


Kellie is a freshman interning in Dr. Hawley's lab through the Women in Sciences Program (WISP) at Dartmouth. Her interest in glaciology probably stems from the fact that she has spent her enitre life up until now in San Diego, where snow and ice are essentially nonexistent. She has many academic interests, though, and has not yet decided on a major. Kellie plays on the Dartmouth Women's Club Water Polo Team and enjoys swimming, hiking, rock climbing, photography, collaging, and puzzles.
