Team Member Stephanie M

I'd like to introduce the newest member of our team, Stephanie!  She'll be working with us as our team biologist, helping us to identify any critters we come across on our dives, and maybe if we are lucky even finding something new.  Both I (James) and team member Dan S met her while studying at Texas State, where she received her Bachelor's in Wildlife Biology and her Master's in Ecology, and she now works as a Wildlife Biologist for an environmental consulting firm based in Houston, Tx.  She knows a lot about things living both in caves and underwater, as she wrote her thesis on Bat Species and Habitat Use in Trans-Pecos, Texas as well as worked for the Meadows Center For Water and The Environment in San Marcos (formerly the Aquarena Center) so her expertise will be a great asset to us as we start our exploration of Jacob's Well.  I'm really excited to have her aboard and looking forward to her insights on our dives with the ROV!
