LUCIA GIL was born in Costa Rica and moved to South Florida when she was young, where she fell in love with the Southeast coast and its beautiful diverse ecosystems. Her life was spent along the coast of South Florida, spending time living in Miami, Broward, Palm Beach, and up north in Martin County. She studied Biology and Chemistry in Florida State University and carried out coral and biogeochemistry research at FSU’s Coastal Marine Lab, where she decided her life would be spent among Florida’s beautiful reefs. She currently studies Marine Conservation at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Science, and is interested in learning how best to protect our coastline ecosystems through research and communication.
