Kiley is originally from Florida and has always known that marine biology was her passion. She began her deep dive into the field as a high school intern with Mote Marine and continued on to intern with the Education department and in the Seahorse Conservation Laboratory during college.
After graduating college, Kiley worked as a fisheries biologist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission in Charlotte Harbor for a time before coming back to her roots at Mote. She currently is responsible for bringing marine science and Mote research to the public during behind the scenes tours and to the early childhood audience through the Mommy and Me at Mote program.
