Manuela Mejia
Biology Advisor • (she/her/hers)

Manuela is a member of the biology advising team who advises sophomore, junior, and senior biology students.  

I am originally from Medellin, Colombia (City of Eternal Spring) and moved to Colorado in 2012. I received my BA degree in 2017 from the University of Colorado Boulder (Go BUFF!) with a double major in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Spanish Language & Literature. During my undergrad, I worked as a Peer Advisor in the College of Arts & Sciences where I participated in Orientation, student advising for new and continuing students, and presentations at different events both on and outside campus. I am completed my Master’s in Biology from Miami University (OH) in 2021. My program has an emphasis in inquiry-driven education, environmental stewardship, and global understanding through firsthand experiences abroad.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my partner Daniel, and discussing science with anybody that will listen.
