Attending Florida International University (FIU) for a B.S. in Marine Biology, I started my career during this time involving myself with several different laboratories in different disciplines including, but not limited to; marine ecology, acoustic ecology, behavioral ecology, ecotoxicology, epigenetics, and shark ecology. After graduating, I took a position with the Marine Ecology and Acoustics laboratory gathering and analyzing acoustic data on the population density of red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) in the Gulf of Mexico. I then took a position as a Alaskan Groundfish Observer and Northeast Protected Species of Observer before accepting a position with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as a Biological Scientist I with the Mollusc group. I am currently a NOAA affiliate as Acoustic Data Analyst. My current work involves analyzing acoustic data on the foraging habits of Atlantic Right Whale (Eubalaena glacialis) in order to create a baseline, prior to the establishment of offshore wind installations, in the Southern New England Area. In my free time I am an avid scuba diver that is in the process of obtaining my instructor, cave diving, and rebreather certifications. I also enjoy heavy metal music and try to go to concerts when I can.
