Chase Weber, School of Forensic Sciences

Where are you from? 

Mustang, Oklahoma.                                                                                                                            

What tribe/nation are you a citizen or member of?

Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

Why did you want to come to OSU-CHS and what are your career goals?

I was led to OSU-CHS through the paleontology and anthropology field experiences I had while taking part in Native Explorers, a program at OSU-CHS that offers Native American college students the chance for hands-on anatomy and paleontology experiences. My career goal is to continue to work as a medicolegal death investigator, someone who works with medical examiners and coroners. I would also like to work more with forensic anthropology. 

What has the experience been like so far in the School of Forensic Sciences at OSU-CHS?

The entire program is like being part of a family. Each of the courses has opened doors that I hadn’t thought possible.  

How has being Native American impacted your life or your career choices?

It taught me to look at my life at a more spiritual level. I have learned to trust that even after the loss of my loved ones they are with me through the path of life. Being a Native American in the forensic field brings more diversity into the field.
