Background with Respect to Ocean Sciences Education:

Most of my background that has prepared me to participate in ocean sciences education has not come from my degree training but from my work experience with NOAA Fisheries during the past eleven years.  Being part of a large collaborative research group forced me to learn a much broader spectrum of marine sciences than staying within my own training.
