What I do at Sea Grant

I write about Great Lakes water issues and Sea Grant activities and research. I also create the Wisconsin Water News podcast and oversee the Great Lakes Takes blog. I work in collaboration with program scientists, outreach specialists and institute staff to build water science literacy. Prior to joining Wisconsin Sea Grant in 2012, I worked for Minnesota Sea Grant for 15 years.
