About Us

            Tides of Change Research and Conservation is a dream I have had since I was a young girl.  My entire life has been driven by a passion to conserve and educate people about our world's oceans.  I believe that as people are exposed to the amazing animals and beauty of the ocean through first hand experiences and education, they too will be driven to protect the breath taking world beneath the waves.  I have been lucky enough to work as a marine biologist in Hawaii for the last 20 years and strive to inspire other women and local children to pursue a career in resource management.                                           
              My vision has been to involve the community in the conservation/management of their local near-shore resources.  Communities can also form boards to help manage larger offshore areas used by open-ocean and roving species such as tuna and sharks.  I believe in a grass-roots form of marine resource management where local communities manage resources in a way that fits their needs and ensures the ocean's health is preserved.
