What I do at Sea Grant

As a science communicator, I use a range of tools to build Great Lakes literacy and share the important work that Sea Grant is doing in research, outreach and education. I write news releases and other stories, manage our social media channels and plan a series of public science talks, among other things. I’m always learning something new!

More About Me

Except for a brief stint in Germany, I’ve lived in the Great Lakes region all my life, spanning six of the eight Great Lakes states. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, dancing, visual art and spending time with my two rescue pups.
