Where did you train and study for this career?

I received a Bachelor’s of Science (B.S.) degree from the University of Connecticut in Biology. I wanted to be sure I had a solid background in the sciences (math, chemistry, biology, etc.) before I continued with graduate school. I received my Ph.D. in Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences from Texas A&M University. As a graduate student, you design your own program with a committee of professors. My studies focused on dolphin behavior and communication. I also did several internships and volunteer programs at various facilities including the whale watch internship, work with Mystic Marinelife Aquarium and more. Experience is key to clarifying what it is you want to learn and study.
