I grew up in the Central Coast in Greenfield, California surrounded for miles by agricultural fields. Wanting to explore the world beyond my little town, I then attended University of California, Los Angeles where I majored in Biology with a double minor in Mexican Studies and Spanish. During my last quarter at UCLA, I applied to the Roger Arliner Young (RAY) Marine Conservation Diversity Fellowship Program that in collaboration with Point Blue, allowed me to merge my passion for education, science, and social justice.
I currently am a Conservation Educator within Point Blue’s STRAW program located in Petaluma and surrounding Bay Area. When I’m not at work, more often than not you can find me behind some type of science fiction book or a camera taking rookie photos of anything and everything.
