As an intern for the Eckerd College Dolphin Project, I have gained valuable experience in conducting research on bottlenose dolphins in Tampa Bay. For the past two summers I completed internships at other institutions and at Eckerd. Besides being a marine science tutor and a lab Teaching Assistant, I am also a resident advisor and an ambassador which allowed me to interact with diverse groups of people. Eckerd has given me invaluable experiences through on-campus involvement.
