I am a marine ecologist, a STEM professional consultant and nonprofit founder with a passion for connecting scientists, educators and students in all three countries surrounding the Gulf of Mexico. I believe in focusing and promoting the ecology, economy, and inclusive culture of the Gulf to all people.
I have conducted fisheries and benthic ecology research as well as developed and implemented successful education and outreach programs for youth and educators.
I am the President and Founder of Gulf Reach. My organization focuses on Science-Health-Education (S.H.E.). Gulf Reach offers consulting services for STEM education programming and development for broader impact projects and proposals as well as a community Teen Science Café program.
