I was raised in the waters in and around Biscayne Bay spearfishing, snorkeling, shrimping, fishing, sandbars getaways, and wakeboarding. My hope is that my children and future generations have access to the beauty and bounty of the bay as I have.
I earned my Master in Public Health in order to work with people who were connected to the land. That led me to citizen science projects such as the BP oil spill in New Orleans, building wind turbines for unelectrified communities in rural Peru, as well as working to source tea from organic and regenerative tea farmers in India, Nepal, Japan.
A growing community has been forming around Biscayne Bay for the past number of years and this work is my contribution to the bigger community.
