Jorie has been obsessed with the ocean since she was three and has always tried maximizing the time she spends in the water. Currently, she works as a Marine Science Instructor at the Catalina Island Marine Institute where she alternates between leading snorkels and teaching marine science lessons. Jorie loves having a job where wearing a tutu and cape is a normal work uniform and days off are spent hiking, scuba diving and looking for dolphins. In the past, she has worked at Sea Turtle Camp teaching about all things diving and turtles, led kindergarteners searching for critters during sea grass field trips in Miami where she went to college, and learned about ocean policy as an intern at the headquarters of the National Marine Fisheries Service. Her favorite things she has ever seen underwater are a tie between an ocean sunfish and a whale shark, both spotted while studying abroad in the Galapagos Islands. When not in the ocean, you can find her hunting for geocaches or attempting to master Crow pose in yoga. Jorie is excited to share her love of the ocean and experience teaching with the Road Less Traveled students this summer.
