- My Summary
Growing up next to the beach in southern California, I consider myself a true ocean person. In my hometown of San Diego, CA it was considered a sacred responsibility for all locals to help keep our beaches clean. Once I got the travel bug, I began to explore the different wonders of the world. I lived and studied in the Middle East and Europe along the beautiful Mediterranean, and travelled around South America and Southeast Asia. My most memorable underwater experience was in the Red Sea where I witnessed an explosion of colours and sea creatures I had never seen before! Throughout my travels, my eyes were opened to the beauty of life underwater and also to the important environmental challenges that threatened it. I became inspired to use my BA in International Relations and apply it to environmental studies. I came to Australia and achieved a Masters of Environmental Management so I could be equipped to work towards the solutions of these challenges we face. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Project AWARE, giving a voice to our marine environment and our ocean heroes that protect it!
