Having green hair and blue lips from being in the pool too long as a child, it was only natural that I entered a field based around water. I started my career in college working at the largest fish store in the region, That Fish Place. Upon graduation, I continued my growth as an Aquarist at the National Aquarium before ending up at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium.
