My Story

I'm a youth environmentalist and my second home since the age of five has been the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. I love marine science, STEM education, and working with people who want to help the natural world. I started my own conservation organization, Raleigh Aquatic Turtle Adoption, in 2006.

Outreach and Public Speaking

I love talking about conservation, I share my favorite quotes from my mentors. From Dr. Jane Goodall, "Every single one of us can make a difference every single day" and from Dr. Emlyn Koster "Take the long view." I ask adults to listen to young people and I ask young people to join us.
