I was raised in a sailing, snorkeling and scuba diving loving family in Tallahassee, Florida. After earning a BA in Sociology from Florida State University, I moved to St. John, Virgin Islands, planning to spend a year. A year in the Virgin Islands turned into a two-year sailing trip that roamed from Martha’s Vineyard, to Grenada, through Panama and the Galapagos and finally landed in Hawaii by way of the Marquesas. After returning to the Virgin Islands, my interests shifted to the marine environment and brought me to UVI. I will be working with Tyler Smith identifying and mapping additional Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems surrounding St. Thomas and exploring the physical factors that define each system.
