Mariah joined the Galveston Bay Foundation in September 2018. She graduated from Texas A&M University at Galveston with a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology and a minor in Diving Methods and Techniques. She is currently pursuing her master’s degree in Nature-Based Early Childhood Education, as this is moving her toward one of her greatest passions of helping children foster a meaningful relationship with the natural world. Mariah recently became a Texas Master Naturalist with the Galveston Bay Area Chapter, adding to her knowledge of the local environment, which she loves to share with students to cultivate their sense of place. In her free time, Mariah enjoys reading, scuba diving, nature walks, snacking, and marveling at all things miniature.
