Biography

I was born in France and raised in Knoxville, TN.  My interest for the marine environment began at a very young age.  Living in a landlocked state, I relied heavily on books and documentaries to maintain my interest.  I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Marine Affairs and Policy from the University of Miami with minors in Economics and Environmental Science.  Following my graduation, I worked for a non-profit organization that focused on the conservation of billfish species through the use of a constituent-based tagging program, to keep track of the population size, migrations, growth rates, and important life history characteristics relevant to management measures.  I also spent some time working at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Miami, looking at economic trends of commercial fisheries within the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic/Caribbean.  Beyond my academic interests, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and I am an avid scuba diver.
