Dani Lacy 

Where are you from?
Louisville, Kentucky

Where did you go to school and what did you study? 
I received a bachelor of science in biology and a minor in marine science from Wittenberg University. I then went on to study at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science for a master of professional science in tropical marine ecosystem management.

Is there something about working at Sanibel Sea School that you are looking most forward to?
Being able to learn more about the ocean every single day!  

What do you like to do during your time off? 
I like to take my wiener dog, Beyoncé, to the beach. She loves to swim.

Favorite sea creature: 
The sea cucumber, because even though they look simple and a little gross at first glance, they are fascinating organisms with crazy defense mechanisms.

What's the best music for a weekend at the beach? 
Rick Ross or Earth Wind and Fire

If you could visit any marine ecosystem on the planet, where would you go? 
I would like to dive during a ray migration.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
I’ve gone sledding on the side of a volcano in Nicaragua. 

Thank you, Dani!
