Hi! My name is Courtney King. I grew up In Plymouth, Michigan and graduated from Central Michigan University with a B.S. in Biology in May of 2017. During my time as an undergrad, I had the privilege of spending a summer living and studying in the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica sparking my interest and passion for tropical conservation and ecology. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant for a sea turtle conservation project on the beautiful and remote Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica for five months. There, I walked the beaches by night in search of nesting moms, and by day, helped release their babies! This experience solidified my love for these amazing creatures and I cannot wait to make a life out of helping them out. When not working, I love to spend my time traveling, snowboarding, exploring, hiking, kayaking.. pretty much anything outdoors, or just relaxing with a good book. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for me!
