Solutions for the Navy and Ocean Conservancy

What began as two internships without an end goal in sight, has officially concluded with two publications. Though my internship has wrapped, my work with the Navy is continuing, unofficially. I have been invited to join calls with the city of Monterey and NPS to discuss climate resiliency efforts and public-public partnerships going forward. At […]

8 weeks into my internship

These past few weeks have been an incredible learning experience! I can’t believe how fast it has gone. I’m currently in full swing writing my white paper on how critical infrastructure in California will be impacted by sea-level rise. This has been so informative in my thinking of how communities will be impacted. Normally, I […]

In my case, I am very fortunate to work for two amazing organizations right from my garden. The only slight inconvenience to this is perhaps the woodpeckers, who seem to have perfectly timed their […]

As expected, remote work has had its ups and downs so far, but in all has been a positive growth experience. I have to be honest though, having started both of my internships just last week, it took me a minute to find my balance. This was less about the heavy workload and more about […]

Blue Carbon in Marine Protected Areas

At the start of the school year, I never would have guessed I would be working from my apartment in Monterey. I am interning for the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (GFNMS) office working on blue carbon sequestration and storage within the sanctuary boundaries. The GFNMS office has been very welcoming and supportive as I […]
