I've been drawn to all things aquatic for as long as I can remember. I hold a B.S. in Biology, Marine Emphasis from Western Washington University, along with a B.S. in Public Relations and B.A. in Spanish from the University of Miami. I have been part of the professional whale watching community since 2008, having worked as a marine naturalist and whale advocate in both Southern California and the Salish Sea (Washington and British Columbia). I have always been particularly interested in baleen whale species and for the last five years have been documenting humpback whale family and social interactions throughout inland BC and WA waters.
