Hi! I’m Cate, I go to the University of Vermont and live in Washington, D.C. I love books and writing, but also spend much of my time outside hiking or beachcombing. One of my favorite memories is searching for shark teeth on the beach with my little brother, and I want to bring that energy into my work and field of study. I want nothing more than to show off all that I have learned and to inspire the same kind of love for the ocean. I am excited to get a chance to put my skills to use with LegaSea in the interest of transparent, accessible scientific communication – and to build up my community while I’m at it!
