A University of Hawai’i graduate with a BS in Marine Biology and a BA in Art History, Carly’s education and her love of the water and adventure led her to her work in conservation biology, focused on global climate change and the effects it has on the marine habitat. She spent years on marine life research and education including prestigious internships at both The National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium in Taiwan as well as with government agency, NOAA, diving in the Papahanaumakuakea National Marine sanctuary in the northwest Hawaiian Islands. She traveled the world including Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, and South America- experiencing the amazing history, art, and culture each place offered. Looking for a place to set roots with her husband and young son, the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the sense of community and small town feel brought Carly and her family to Gig Harbor. She’s dedicated to helping other young families find their place here in the Puget Sound, offering a fresh perspective on life in our community. When she's not working, you'll most likely find her on the water or exploring the PNW trails.
