As a born and raised Floridian, I thought I never would leave my home state but after a short research trip to American Samoa I fell in love with the Pacific. After attending college and graduate school in Florida I moved to American Samoa in 2009. Living in American Samoa has opened many doors – as an extension agent in a small island community I am tasked with a variety of jobs, which keeps things interesting. My favorite part by far is working with students and opening their eyes to the natural beauty of their home.
