For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for wildlife and the outdoors and knew that a career in this field would be a dream come true! I grew up in Killeen, Texas and completed my B.S. in Wildlife Biology at Texas State University. I had an opportunity to go to Costa Rica in 2008 on a sea turtle volunteer program and from that moment on, I was hooked! I first came to Sea Turtle, Inc. in 2014 as an intern and experienced so many amazing things. I am excited to return as an Educator and to help spread awareness about sea turtle conservation with all of you! When I’m not working, you can find me out on my paddleboard with my dogs, Harley and Riley.
Favorite Sea Turtle Species
My favorite species of sea turtles would have to be the Leatherbacks since they were the first species I ever worked with. I was able to see hatchlings in Costa Rica, and finally got to see nesting mamas in Ghana this past winter which was a dream come true!
