“Ocean conservation has never been more crucial, and I believe that education is the first step towards conservation. These students are our future and I am incredibly excited to see what they accomplish as marine scientists, explorers, and ocean stewards.”

Every effort we take to protect the ocean is a step forward to safeguard our future, as we are all connected to the sea. Science is the key to understand those connections and find innovative solutions to solve the most pressing environmental problems facing our oceans. I strive to educate my students about the marine world and science, spark their curiosity, nurture their thirst for knowledge, and prepare them to contribute to the protection of our shared future on this planet.”

“I spend my days by the ocean, or in classrooms- observing plants and animals. Not only sharing, but constantly learning new ways to interpret, respect, and care for our planet. Through these experiences, I find myself filled with more passion and excitement each day to pursue and teach about environmental science. I love to share that excitement through hands-on, engaging learning techniques leaving children forming their own connections with the environment. You often hear, ‘the youth is the future of tomorrow.’ Well, I happen to think the youth is the future of today.”
