My interest in taking a multidisciplinary approach to coastal resource management developed as an undergraduate and graduate student while working at the Stockton College Coastal Research Center (CRC), Atlantic City Aquarium, and NJDEP Division of Fish & Wildlife. I spent most of my professional career at the CRC as an Environmental Specialist and GIS Assistant working on shoreline monitoring and assessment programs with the State of New Jersey and several municipalities. Additional projects that I was involved with included: Hurricane Sandy damage assessment and debris removal, Coastal Flood Hazard Outreach for FEMA, and a GIS based beach-dune system susceptibility assessment. I try to spend as much of my free time as possible exploring, traveling, and visiting with family and friends.
