About Me

I have always loved the ocean. That love grew into a marine biology degree, underwater photography, a blog called Ocean Observations, and a growing passion for helping others learn about the amazing animals of the ocean.

This website is a place to share resources for science communicators and people interested in supporting women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers.

For those of you who enjoy cooking, you might like my recipe blog the Dig & Pig.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me. I am also available as a science writer.


Here are some samples of my writing and my resume.
