B.S. in Marine Biology

University of Rhode Island



Allie holds a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from the University of Rhode Island. Her passion for conservation led her to join the Peace Corps in the Philippines, where she dedicated herself from 2016 to 2018 as a Coastal Resource Management specialist. In collaboration with local government units, she championed marine protected areas and advanced various fisheries projects. Returning to the United States, Allie pursued certification as a North Pacific Groundfish Observer in Alaska. Working primarily in Dutch Harbor and Southeast AK, she observed trawl, longline, and pot gear operations aboard numerous vessels. In 2021, Allie gained valuable expertise while working on the Long Island Sound Trawl survey with the state of Connecticut. Transitioning to a role with Americorps, Allie contributed as an Aquatic Ecology Monitor at Cape Cod National Seashore in Truro, MA. Her primary focus centered on a comprehensive horseshoe crab tagging study, shedding light on the population dynamics and movements of horseshoe crabs inhabiting East Harbor. Beyond her professional pursuits, Allie finds solace and fulfillment in various hobbies, including backpacking, reading, crocheting, ocean swimming, thrift shopping, and cycling.
