Victoria earned her M.S. in Marine Biology in January 2014 from Northeastern University through the Three Seas Program, and graduated in 2011 with her B.A. in Biology from Wheaton College in Norton Massachusetts. Through field research and teaching in both informal and classroom settings, she has developed a passion for environmental education. She has worked as an endangered species monitor for Mass Audubon’s Coastal Waterbird Program, and as an Educator through the education and outreach department at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center. She is an avid SCUBA diver, both scientifically and recreationally, and currently volunteers with Seattle Audubon’s education department and their Finding Urban Nature (F.U.N.) programming. These occasions have stimulated her drive and continued pursuit of marine and environmental science, as well as conservation-minded research and education.
