Hello, my name is Cassandra Collins. I am an aspiring
planetary volcanologist. I am 27 and my birthday is
March 1st. For work I am currently an after-school nanny
and a teller at Turf Paradise horse track. I like the
color green and my favorite type of weather is cold and
rainy. Below are pictures of my Italian Greyhound, Pepper.
She is 16 years old and her favorite food is steak. She
is very spoiled.
My interest in planetary geology came about 1.5 years ago when I found the profession online. I was bored in my current major and knew I needed a change. I had always liked geology, you could call me a geology documentary junkie, and thinking I could apply that knowledge to other planets was so cool. My interest in volcanism came in GLG 101. I was very good at understanding volcanos and thought seeing and studying them on other planets would be a welcome challenge. My favorite volcano story is that of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii. Here is a link to a site explaining the story. City of Pompeii Destroyed by Mount Vesuvius
