Why I work at the Ocean Institute: I work at the Ocean Institute because being near the ocean, teaching about the ocean and continuing to learn about the ocean are high priorities in my life! I supervise our Distance Learning Department where my outreach team and I travel to regional locations teaching hands on-on experiential programs, many of which are grant funded for underserved and special needs students. Prior to working at the Ocean Institute, I taught marketing classes at Los Angeles Trade Technical college. The opportunity to combine my passion for the ocean with my professional marketing and educational experience has been uniquely satisfying for almost 20 years. It is also a tremendous amount of FUN!
