Hi! My name is Paula and I'll be spending the summer working as a senior marine educator for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. I grew up in Sudbury, Massachusetts and I just graduated from the University of New Hampshire where I majored in marine and freshwater biology.

As a kid, I learned to sail at Community Boating on the Charles and I'm very excited to be working with the kids at Boston's sailing programs and camps to help them explore the ocean While my background is in field ecology research, I'm a huge believer in the importance of citizen sicence and of getting scientists out and about to interact with the public to spread their enthusiasm for the natural world.

In addition to having a great time and providing the kids at our programs with an awesome experience, I'm hoping that the experiences I gain this summer will help me to encourage other scientists to share their passion and knowledge with a wider audience.
