I currently live in Easton Maryland and am attending grad school at Johns Hopkins university studying biodiversity conservation. I graduated from University of Maryland College Park in 2016 with a degree in environmental policy, my concentration was environmental issues and society.
In between undergraduate and grad school I worked as an environmental educator at a nonprofit located in Saint Michaels Maryland. I taught kids (as young as 18 months) through 12th grade, and professional scientists, all about the Chesapeake Bay watershed, with a focus on the human impacts on the estuary system.
I hope to gain more experience working in the environmental field, specifically conservation and research through Ocean Doctor. After having Dr. G as a professor, I was inspired and excited to continue working with him.
Right now I am doing research on sawfish legislation in Panama, working with SeaLife Law and Shark Advocates International in collaboration with Ocean Doctor.
