WELCOME OUR 2022 SOC Intern; Megan Hoover
July 7, 2022
Hello Sea of Change Foundation friends!
My name is Megan Hoover, and I am excited to announce that I am the Sea of Change Foundation’s new Marine Conservation and Communications intern. I will be working alongside the Foundation’s team to bring to you the latest and greatest marine science news, research, fun facts, and helping with fundraising so we can continue protecting and learning more about our oceans! During my time as an intern here I hope to gain valuable work experience in science communication and make great connections with others who also share a love for our oceans. I hope to highlight the importance of ocean ecosystems and how they connect to our daily lives by being a communication bridge between researchers and the public!
As for my background, I am currently a Master of Professional Science Student at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science in Miami, Florida; I am projected to graduate in December of 2022. I have a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio, and I have always had a passion for conservation since I was young. Being outdoors whenever possible and exploring new areas is my favorite thing to do in my free time as well as having fun with friends and family. I am an animal lover and worked as a veterinary assistant for five years where I gained a deep appreciation for the selfless people who work in that field. I have many pets of my own: two cats, a chocolate lab, a hedgehog, and two very charismatic axolotls. As for the future, I am open to whatever direction my passion leads to next, but I have become quite interested in environmental action and outreach, which is why I am so excited to be here as an intern!
