Micah Ashford

Oregon State University


Hello everyone! My name is Micah and although originally from Oregon, I have spent the majority of the last 6 years overseas in both Japan and South Korea while working as an elementary school teacher and actor. After deciding to make a career change, I now study Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences at Oregon State University through their distance education program. It has always been a dream of mine to work with wildlife, especially marine wildlife. I’m so excited to be a member of the Sea Turtle, Inc. team this spring and summer. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor sports, running, cycling, body boarding, yoga, and pretty much anything else to keep me active. I have a particular passion for scuba diving as well as underwater photography. I hope to get into the water and do some diving at least a few times this summer.
