After completing my undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies at Memorial University of Newfoundland, I completed an Advanced Diploma program in Coastal Zone Management at the Fisheries and Marine Institute in St. John's , NL. Currently I am completing the work term component of the Coastal Zone Management program with the Department of Fisheries Oceans Canada (DFO). My duties include researching and writing a draft document outlining a Marine Biodiversity Discovery Corridor in Bonavista Bay , Newfoundland . My research at DFO involves describing the socio-economic and biophysical aspects of Bonavista Bay , providing an extensive annotated bibliography of previous research projects that are related to my project, identification of stakeholders, and future recommendations for the implementation of the biodiversity corridor project. My contract with DFO finishes September 3 rd , 2004 , and then I am going to Malawi for 6 months, through CIDA, to work on an aquaculture project.
