As an alum of SEA Semester from more years ago than I’d like to admit, I’m passionate about the value of the experience. I’m part of the Admissions & Marketing team for Sea Education Association and my role focuses on maintaining the website, creating print materials, posting to social media and managing the digital marketing.

SEA Alumna Kate Mansfield Studies Storm Impact on Turtle Nests
SEA Semester Alumna in the News
“Many of Florida’s Sea Turtle Nests Were Destroyed by Hurricane Irma”
By Karen Weintraub, The New York Times
SEA Semester alumna Kate Mansfield, C-109, sea turtle biologist and professor at University of Central Florida, was recently featured in a story in The New York Times.
In addition to wiping out homes and businesses, Hurricane Irma swept away a large number of sea turtle nests as it tore across Florida last month.
The state is a center of sea turtle nesting, and this year was developing into a very encouraging year for the endangered leatherback turtles, the threatened loggerheads and green turtles, said Kate Mansfield, a marine scientist and sea turtle biologist at the University of Central Florida. The hurricane suddenly dashed those hopes.
