Meet Sharon Katz-Cooper, an Orthodox Jewish marine geologist.
Sharon is a native to this area, having grown up in Washington, DC and Silver Spring, MD. After 18 years, she was lured away by the Ivy League.
Sharon holds a bachelor's degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University and a Masters in Environmental Studies from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. She is also pursuing a graduate certificate in early childhood education from George Mason University.
In between projects (and making dinner), she writes children's books and magazine articles on science and social studies topics.
