I am the Programs Manager for Virtual Learning at Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium. My role is to connect your school or organization to Mote's STEM experts through virtual programs. I design, develop, and deliver distance learning programs for audiences of all ages. I also produce multimedia content for our award-winning SEA Trek virtual learning programs.
I help manage Mote's educational technologies such as the distance learning studios and computer lab. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist and Instructor, and I serve as the Central West representative on the FMNP advisory board. I also lead Endless Oceans, Mote's lifelong learning program.
My experience and expertise in marine science education have led me to become a board member of the Florida Marine Science Educators Association and a FMSEA/FWC Aquatic Species Collection Workshop instructor. I am also a member of the National Association of Interpretation and the Children's Media Association. In 2022, I joined the advisory board for the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration.
Before joining Mote, I worked in public television and environmental project management for the state of Florida. If you are interested in connecting with Mote's STEM experts, please contact me for more information.
