Why I work at Ocean Institute: Spending my summers while growing up on Elk Lake in Michigan, I gained an appreciation for water quality, its connection to the environment and of course all the recreational opportunities that a lake affords! Since then, I have spent my career working for CPA firms and other great companies in accounting, auditing and technology. Ocean Institute provides me with a unique opportunity to do something a little more soulful, using my background and experiences to support its important mission promoting ocean education, research and conservation.
