I grew up on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut where I spent my summers exploring our beaches and waters on kayaks, sailboats, and stand-up paddleboards (needless to say- I love the water!)

My varied experiences and passion for my studies have led me here- to Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay. I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to work for a non-profit organization, teaching kids about the Boston Harbor and the importance of its conservation! I am eager to scour the beaches for horseshoe crabs and explore the Boston Harbor islands, as I am not a native Bostonian. My favorite lessons to teach are ones that enable kids to get up close and personal with some sea creatures- nothing is more exciting than pulling a crab trap out of the water and seeing what critters you’ve caught!
As I have said, I can’t wait to get this summer started! I am most looking forward to meeting new people, leading engaging activities centered on the Boston Harbor, and hanging out with some famous Boston lobsters!
Hope to see you on the beaches!
