I'm Samantha-Lynn (she/her), an undergraduate student at the University of Washington studying Evolution, Ecology, Conservation Biology, and Marine Biology.

If you couldn't tell already, I absolutely love the environment and much of my work revolves around it. Aside from the STEAM side of the environment, I full-heartedly believe that science communication is essential for impact and action.

Outside of my daytime position with the environmental education organization, the Salish Sea School, you can find me around my hometown of Seattle, taking videos and photos of my favorite wildlife, and making designs for friends, local orgs, and more!


Thank you so much for stopping by my site to check out what I do. I'm glad that I can combine all my creative passions with science here, and I can't wait to see what's next, or what WE can make together!

You can view the rest of my complete (and very long) bio including positions, projects, features, and more below.

With love,
