Amy Johnston
My name is Amy Johnston and I am currently a junior at Davidson College.  I am a biology major and am creating this personal webpage as part of an assignment for the Biology 362A seminar entitled "From Venoms and Toxins to Drugs" taught by Dr. Karen Bernd.

I live in Columbus, Ohio with my parents and younger brother.  I attended The Wellington School for 14 years and graduated in the class of 1999.  I entered Davidson College the following fall and am attempting to complete my pre-med requirements and a biology major. 

 I have been a member of the Davidson college women's soccer team for the past two years and am beginning my second season in the sweeper position.

Davidson Women's Soccer 2000


Class of '03 from Left to Right:
P.J. Bugg, Tara Maloney, Mary Ellen Schaefer, Meghan Estes, Meghan Ferriter, Amy Johnston, Heather Maloney, Lauren Dennis, Sarah Henry
Davidson College soccer programs are classified as NCAA Division I and compete in the Southern Conference.  At the end of the 2000 season there were 9 remaining women's soccer players from my class ('03).

I spent a month last summer on South Caicos Island in the British West Indies taking a course through The School for Field Studies.  While in the Turks and Caicos I studied marine resource conservation.  Our research focused upon the efficacy of marine protected areas in the preservation of sustainable fisheries stocks of the Queen Conch (Strombus gigas).
