Though a proud Seattleite at heart, Bailey just graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine with majors in Earth & Oceanographic Science and Environmental Studies. She is excited to return to the island for a second summer of scallops, foggy mornings, and raspberry picking! In hopes of improving her Spanish skills, she went abroad on an ecology and marine conservation program in Panama, living with home stay families, eating lots of plantains, and researching Caribbean spiny lobster. This sparked her interest in the intersection of societal resource use and marine science, and she hopes to pursue fisheries management and aquaculture in the future. Scuba diving has been her favorite activity since high school and inspired an awe and passion for the underwater world, which she loves to learn more about and share with others. Whenever she has free time, Bailey enjoys white-water canoeing, playing percussion, cloud spotting, and a good round of board games.
