After 13 years in the Coast Guard focusing on Marine Pollution Enforcement, I realized that we don't have a pollution problem--we have a knowledge problem.
It's a long-held fact that people protect what they love, and so I decided to change careers and teach people (especially youth) about the Marine Environment to encourage a generation of change. My Coast Guard career gave me robust experience with the ocean, marine ecology, and chemistry, but I did not engage in formal education. And so, here I am going back to school to pursue my B.S. in Marine Biology and ultimately my Master's in Informal Science Education to share with everyone I meet the wonders of the ocean. Please JOIN ME on my journey!
On this site, you can connect with Ocean Education Resources as I share what I learn and what I love about the Ocean. My goal is to reach as many people as possible through providing access to ways to teach about the ocean to traditional educators. I hope that students will not only learn science but also learn to love the sea, and that love will lead to curing our ultimate knowledge problem.
