Next in our "Meet the Team Series" we would love to introduce our diver and coordinator Katie Arruda. Katie Arruda is an Environmental Scientist and a New England Native with a passion for anything coastal. She has a Bachelor's degree in Marine Science from the University of Connecticut and a Professional Master's degree in Environmental Science from the University of Utah. As an avid scuba diver, Katie is passionate about marine conservation and the health of our coral reefs. Her interests include marine ecological research and fishery biology.
Katie is happy to be a part of the Reef Life Team protecting the underwater world she is so passionate about. When she's not underwater, you can find Katie riding her horse, running, or hiking with her dog Olive. And yes, she did carve that pumpkin underwater and won the contest.
