Paige Pierce joined the University in January 2018.  She received her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences and Chemistry with a minor in Spanish from the University of Toledo in 2017. Paige completed multiple co-op assignments at the Husky Energy Refinery in Lima, Ohio, where she was put in charge of soils characterization and management, hazardous waste management, project excavations and Spill Containment and Countermeasures inspections of the numerous storage tanks at the refinery.

While in school, Paige was active as an officer for the student chapter of the American Chemical Society, performing chemistry demonstrations and education about the importance of science at schools throughout Toledo and also volunteering at Imagination Station (formerly COSI) conducting the “Saturday Morning Science” program for elementary school children. Paige also volunteered for four years at the Toledo Metro Parks, where she completed over 200 hours of wild-lands firefighting training and supported nature restoration work.

She led her capstone project team, which studied the decline of Rayed Bean Mussels in Swan Creek, to learn why they continue to decline in numbers despite being on the endangered species list.

Paige enjoys music, hiking, wildfire fighting and supporting sustainability especially by recycling and hopes to make an impact on the environment by both supporting a green campus and helping to lead by example to the fantastic University of Dayton student culture.
