Marine and Environmental Biologist
I received my masters in marine and environmental biology from the University of Southern California. For the past 8 years I have worked seasonally in Alaska doing fisheries management work. I love to travel and have made it to all 7 countries. My love of travel and marine biology lead me to working for an environmental consulting company in Australia and I got to work on projects in East Timor and Papua New Guinea. I grew up in Hawaii and Guam during my early childhood which lead me to choosing marine biology as my career path and I am looking forward to being back in Hawaii now.
