Marketing & Communications Manager, International
Washington, DC, USA
I moved a lot as a child and grew up in California, North Carolina, Australia, Wisconsin, and New Jersey; in that order. Although I lived in a diverse group of locations, I always felt a natural draw towards the ocean and the creatures that inhabit it. I learned how to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, and would have to be dragged out of the water. The connection I have always felt toward the ocean and its inhabitants ultimately drove me to want to protect it.
Throughout my career I have learned that to be truly fulfilled I need to care about the outcome of my work. This realization brought me to obstain my masters degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and ultimately here to Oceana. Now, I have the pleasure of combining my personal interests with my marketing and communications background to help make Oceana famous and promote the amazing work that we do!
