I am a student at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, WA, looking to finish my Bachelor’s in Environmental Studies in the Spring of 2019. As a kid in middle school, I went on a sailing/marine science overnight field trip on a sail boat and fell in love with the idea of marine studies. My favorite marine animal is otters, and I delight in any opportunity to find and observe them! I work as a West Coast intern for Cascadia, assisting in photo id, whale watching observational trips, educational necropsies, and lots more around the office. I look forward to expanding my horizons through Cascadia, and learning as much as I can during my time here.
