Senior Program Manager

I'm a senior education program manager in NOAA's Office of Education. Since 2015, our Environmental Literacy Program (ELP) has focused its largest grant competitions on building community resilience to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather through formal K-12 and informal education of children, youth, and adults.

NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. Our reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them. From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product.
