Hi, I am Serena and I work for a non-profit marine science educational institution and it focuses on aquatic life in San Francisco Bay. So my official title is I am an educator slash instructor and so what that means is I teach kids about life at the marine science institute.
The main skill set that you need to do this job is going to be mostly public speaking and a background in biology, hopefully aquatic biology of some sort. We also work on a research vessel as crew and so be able to lift heavy objects also if they require.
If I had any tips for people looking to go into marine science I would not go into it expecting to make a lot of money. It's not a job that pays very high but for me I'm super passionate about it. I've loved marine science since I was little and so for me I feel like I don't really work a day in my life because I really love what I do.
What I'm looking to do is to go back to school in the near future and get my master's so that I can be working in a lab to do more hands-on research. So that is my end goal but this is a really cool stepping stone for that path.
