Miya hugs a large dog and they both look at the camera, smiling.

EPP/MSI participation


  • M.S. Marine Science - Physical Oceanography from California State University, Monterey Bay, supported by CCME.
  • B.S. Oceanography from University of Washington.

EPP/MSI enabled me to attend graduate school, which would have been a much greater challenge without EPP/MSI support. Being a part of the program provided a baseline of NOAA knowledge that empowered me to apply and successfully hold both a NOAA contractor position and my current federal position within the National Ocean Service.
