Ariel Gruenthal ('08, Anthropology)
Humboldt County's First Female Deputy Coroner

As an undergraduate, she worked with Anthropology Professor Mary Glenn identifying remains in missing-persons cases for the coroner's office. "We would lay out skeletons and I would help her do biological profiles of the remains," Gruenthal says. "That kind of good, hands-on training is the best way to learn."
