The Pigeon Key Foundation and Marine Science Center would like to introduce our newest staff members that have joined our team for the 2016 Education Season! These four interns will aid in the teaching of marine science programs to our visiting school groups and summer camps!

Matt Sheffield joins us from Indianapolis, Indiana and graduated from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. He hopes to utilize his previous summer camp experience to pass along his love of the marine environment to our school groups.

Nicole Harper, a Clemson University graduate, comes to us from Norwell, Massachusetts. With an outdoor education and marine science background, she aims to share her wonder and passion for our oceans in hopes of inspiring equal enthusiasm in others.

Rachel Natoli hails from Silver Springs, Maryland where she attended St. Mary’s College of Maryland.  Her love of the ocean and wildlife instill a strong drive to conserve the environment around us and hopes to pass this passion along to the many students who visit Pigeon Key.

Hollis Jones is from New Orleans, Louisiana and completed her undergraduate career at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.  She is excited to share her her past diving experience and passion for the marine environment with students and visitors to Pigeon Key.

These lucky interns will be instructing on Pigeon Key from now until mid-August, come on out to the island and meet our new staff!
