Join Miami Waterkeeper in welcoming our new Program Intern, Nicole Sedran! Nicole joined our team in May 2019, and we’re very excited to be working with her!
Nicole was born and raised in the Hudson Valley, New York and is currently a Master’s of Professional Science candidate at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science where she studies Marine Conservation. She has a passion for marine conservation outreach and education and believes these are the first steps to making a change.
Nicole graduated from Siena College in Loudonville, New York with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Environmental Studies and a minor in Creative Arts in May 2018. It was here that her interest in outreach and education was sparked. Throughout her undergraduate, Nicole took various courses that focused on science, interpretation, environmental sociology, and photography. These classes helped her learn the proper and effective ways to get a message across to people of various backgrounds in a variety of ways. Nicole’s semester abroad on South Caicos solidified that she wanted to pursue marine conservation as a career, especially after she was able to teach local groups, specifically the children, the importance of their native ecosystems through outreach opportunities.
Nicole is excited to be interning with Miami Waterkeeper and is looking forward to gaining hands-on experience with the MWK team.
