I'm an Aquatic Ecologist who has been fortunate enough to get stuck in the mud on three continents. As a young girl, I was inspired to explore the environment and take action to protect it by Nobel Prize laureate and Environmentalist, Prof. Wangari Maathai. Most of my work has been in California and it's been amazing working there, but now I have an incredible opportunity to collaborate with scientists in Kenya to tackle a massive but necessary aquatic problem. On a recent trip to Kenya, I was saddened to see how many aquatic habitats were destroyed or severely degraded and knew I needed to step in. After all, I grew up here, played in neighborhood streams and loved everything about the mysterious lakes and rivers.
Water is life and I want to learn everything about it and how to protect it, please join me on this journey.
