Hello, I'm Jill
After 13 years in the Coast Guard focusing on Marine Pollution Enforcement, I came to the realization 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.
