Mystic, CT USA
I have dedicated my academic and professional life to the fields of environmental conservation and marine biology, pursuing programs integrating exhibitry, conservation, research, and education. Over the course of my career, I have developed a robust and diverse skill set in capacity building, exhibit development, data analysis, grant proposal preparation and administration, project management, scientific research, teaching, and writing. I have developed 12 static and live exhibits, published 12 peer-reviewed scientific publications, delivered over 300 presentations in the field to audiences of all ages all over the United States, acquired over $700,000 in grants and scholarships to support environmental conservation, education, exhibitry, and research initiatives, and have been featured in programs aired on ABC, National Geographic, and other media outlets. My mission is to advise, inform, inspire, and take strategic action to conserve our natural world.
