Why I Work at Ocean Institute: I grew up at the beach and from an early age I knew I wanted to study the ocean. After college, I fell into an informal teaching job and was hooked! I moved home and re-discovered Ocean Institute and knew this was the place for me. Working here allows me to combine my passion of the ocean and conservation with teaching. Watching students make connections and get excited about learning and science, makes it all worth it!
