Education Philosophy: "I truly love sharing my knowledge of our environment and natural resources with people. Having grown up in Baltimore, Maryland, I was immersed into the Chesapeake Bay culture from a young age. What better way to 'Save the Bay' than to teach our students about it so that they too will have an invested interest in it's future health."
