Work with Me
I am passionate about making science accessible for all audiences. My goal is to educate students and communities about marine life and promote conservation through education and collaboration. I prefer experiential education when given the chance, but also promote the use of online resources and technology to share information with those that don’t have direct access to the natural world.
I am currently pursuing opportunities to work in the fields of marine biology, education, or project and group management. I am available to work locally in Bocas del Toro or remotely, and I am also willing to relocate internationally for the right opportunity.
Educational and tourism services in Bocas
Are you a hotel owner or involved in tourism? Let me help you create marine and environmental educational materials specific to your business and location!
What would this look like? I can come visit your site and take photos of the marine life right at your house reef or dock and create an identification guide or infographic that is unique to your location! I can also write a blog entry for your website, create infographics or posts for social media, or even create a video.
In addition to creating materials for you, I am also available to come give talks to both staff and visitors about marine science topics such as the importance of coral reefs and mangroves or the biodiversity of marine life in Bocas del Toro. Lessons could take place virtually, on-land, or be combined with a snorkel or scuba dive to your house reef or one of my favorite reefs in the area.
Locally within Bocas del Toro, I am available for hire on a contract, part-time, or full-time basis for:
Creating educational materials for your hotel or business
Giving educational presentations to staff or guests
Managing logistics for hotels or tourism operations
Acting as an activities coordinator or in guest services
Leading snorkels, dives, or tours for individuals and groups
Teaching stand up paddle board (SUP) and surf
Field or computer-based research
Consulting on marine science topics
Writing and editing
Communications and social media
Areas of scientific knowledge for local presentations:

On a separate note, I am also a Fitness Instructor, certified through the American Council on Exercise since 2008! I am available to teach cardio dance fitness, cardio kickboxing, circuit training, and stretching. Get in contact to find out about my current schedule or to arrange a class for your group or hotel!
Interested in collaborating in any education or research initiatives? Do you have any employment opportunities of which I could be of service? Any questions in general?
