EPP/MSI participation


  • M.S. Marine Science from Savannah State University, supported by LMRCSC.
  • B.A. Biology from Savannah State University.

EPP/MSI introduced me to the greatest opportunity of my life and has been a catalyst to where I am today in my career. If I did not attend the Biennial Education and Science Forum while in graduate school, I would not have been able to speak to a NOAA Corps recruiter nor create the path I am currently headed. Collaborations and opportunities such as this is key to the development of our future leaders, enabling them to find a career that interests them.
