Julia Dickerson joined Oceana as the Receptionist and Office Coordinator for the D.C. office in 2015. After getting knocked down by some particularly gnarly waves, she spent most of her childhood admiring the ocean from afar. She fell in love with the world beneath the waves on a study abroad trip to Belize, where she spent time snorkeling off the charming Half Moon Caye. She also studied briefly with the Dolphin Communication Project out of Bimini in the Bahamas. She feels lucky to be close to the action and support all the wonderful staff at Oceana, and thanks them for sharing all the newest information on her beloved fish.
