A plant pathologist and horticulturalist by training, Kari helps with marketing and web design for Coastal Expeditions. Although she's a scientist with an analytical way of thinking, she loves the creativity that comes with her position at Coastal Expeditions. She is proud that Coastal Expeditions is a company on a heartpath, fulfilling a mission of environmental education and stewardship. Olivia, Kari and Chris's daughter gets most of her attention day-to-day (Kari's favorite job!).
FAVORITE COASTAL EXPEDITIONS TRIP: Bulls Island. Every time I go on the dike that separates the ocean from Jack's Creek, a freshwater impoundment, I think that it could be somewhere in Africa. The panoramic views, the variety of birds and the whole feeling makes you feel like you just stumbled into a place that is undiscovered. It makes me feel grateful.
MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE YOU'VE VISITED: Frenchboro Island, Maine. I've never seen a landscape like that. It's cool, green, clean. And the ocean is so big there.
FIVE FAVORITE BIRDS: Black Skimmer | Cedar Waxwing | Blue Jay | White Pelican | Cardinal
FAVORITE SEAFOOD: Creek shrimp caught with a cast net. Saute them with the shell on in some butter and garlic.
BEST PART ABOUT WORKING FOR COASTAL EXPEDITIONS: It's my family's business. And our in-house motto is "let's keep doing the next right thing." It feels great to be working with a group of people that are on their heart paths, educating kids, exposing people to the beauty of the Lowcountry, showing them a dolphin feeding in an estuary. It's fantastic.
