Faces of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center Series
Our series to introduce the people who work at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center. Each month we feature a new "face" from the Center's five laboratories and share with you a bit about who they are, what they do at the Center, and what they enjoy doing in their spare time.
My position has grown since joining the branch ten-plus years ago. It affords me the opportunity to engage in a number of different projects and tasks. They range from writing funding proposals to spending time at the docks catching up with vessel owners and captains. I help administer programs for fishery-dependent data collection. I support our observers, at-sea monitors, and portside samplers in the field as they deploy on vessels from Maine to North Carolina.
Academic Programs Coordinator
I am the Academic Programs Coordinator. My priorities are to help organize, plan, manage and develop center-wide student programs. I have been involved with NOAA’s Ernest F. Hollings undergraduate scholarships, Educational Partnership Program undergraduate scholarships, and Experiential Research & Training Opportunities. Locally, I have also been involved with NOAA’s Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region, hosted at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, NOAA Fisheries’ Woods Hole Science Aquarium, and PEP.
