Before joining NMML in 2006, Erin was the Hawaiian Islands Monk Seal Sightings Coordinator for the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center. She received a B.S. in zoology from Humboldt State University where she studied California seal lion habitat use and foraging behavior. Erin worked with Kempís Ridley sea turtles for Padre Island National Seashore and was a field camp leader for Hawaiian monk seal research on the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands before earning her M.S. in environmental science from Western Washington University.
