As an Atlanta native, I did not grow up around the ocean. I knew I loved animals at a very young age (when I was three years old I wanted to be a panda tracker), but I fell in love with marine biology after the Georgia Aquarium opened in 2005. I have recently gone back to Florida Gulf Coast University to obtain my masters degree in Environmental Science studying mercury in blacktip sharks.

I am always excited to talk about sharks or shells and love seeing that "aha" moment when people realize the ocean is accessible and that they can interact with it.
