I am currently a second year master student at Columbia University, completing my Master of Arts Degree in Conservation Biology. I am very passionate about marine conservation and have experience in the field working at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, as well as Conservation International on shark and ray conservation. I love to travel and scuba dive whenever I get the chance.
All of my experiences in the field of marine biology have solidified my interest in working at an environmental NGO in the future, focusing on coastal sustainability and the development and maintenance of MPAs. This project will involve collaborations with a variety of environmental NGOs, such as Conservation International, Eco Custodian Advocates and Manta Trust. I am hoping this research will be the start of my career by providing me with the opportunity to connect with other NGOs, and connect with people who are passionate about my work and have similar interests.
