Emily Noakes has joined SECOORA for the Fall 2022 semester as our Communications Intern. Emily will create content for the website and learn about scientific writing and communications. Emily is currently a graduate student at the University of Georgia pursuing a Master of Natural Resources degree with an Area of Emphasis in Fisheries Science. She hopes to utilize this degree and her experiences to enter the field of marine conservation, specifically through outreach and communications.
“I am excited to learn about scientific communication through this internship and meet a variety of talented research scientists and communicators.” – Emily Noakes, SECOORA Communications Intern
Emily also spends her time as a Program Assistant at Sandy Creek Nature Center in Athens, Georgia. She plans, organizes, and leads educational programs, while also assisting with outreach events and participating in animal husbandry.
SECOORA is excited to have Emily help us share how stakeholders and scientists are using SECOORA-supported observations, data, and products.
