B.A. Psychology, College of William and Mary
Talia Levine is pursuing her Master’s degree in Conservation Ecology through the University of Georgia’s Odum School of Ecology. Growing up on St. Simons Island gave her a deep appreciation of coastal areas, but it was not until volunteering for the Georgia Sea Turtle Center in 2012 that she realized she wished to pursue ecology further. Having spent the first part of her career working in fitness and wellness promotion, she would like to transition this experience into an ecological framework. Talia’s interests lie in communicating the important work being done by ecologists to diverse audiences, through both community outreach and journalism. Having earned her B.A. in Psychology from the College of William and Mary in 2003, she is interested in motivating meaningful behavior change in individuals and compromise amongst groups with divergent interests through use of relevant scientific communications. Talia is researching the links between health of local aquatic species and human populations under the advisement of Dr. Kimberly Andrews. She is currently a graduate assistant with the National Park Service.
