Parker joined the Coastal Studies Institute in November of 2019. Prior to this role, she served as an Assistant Stranding Technician with the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program after completing her graduate studies. She developed a passion for environmental education through various internships and volunteer opportunities as a student.
Parker spends much of her free time outdoors. She especially enjoys the beach, surfing, and sometimes running too. She has danced almost her whole life, and since graduating from college is always on the hunt for a community ballet class. When she’s not exploring the Outer Banks, she loves to visit her hometown on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Parker supports the implementation and development of K-12 programs, summer camps, and community outreach events. She also generates web and social media content that helps to communicate the research and happenings of CSI to the public.
