Sarah Spencer

Hi, my name is Sarah and I’m an intern with the Hawai’i project! This coming fall, I’ll be a senior at Stony Brook University and will be graduating with a B.S. in Marine Vertebrate Biology. I grew up in Upstate New York but I’ve always loved killer whales. When I took a trip to British Columbia to see them in the wild, I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, too. I spent the summer of 2020 on Lopez Island looking at ecology and Chinook Salmon diet as an intern with Kwiaht, but working with Cascadia will be my first step into the field of marine mammal research and I couldn’t be more excited! When I have downtime, I really enjoy writing, painting, cross-stitching, and journaling. Back in New York, I have a cat named Cucumber and an amazing family who has made this opportunity possible for me. I’m looking forward to all the new, exciting things that this summer will bring!
