She is responsible for directing field and laboratory operations, training and supervising student interns, and coordinating safety protocols for the lab. Lesli graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2003. Her senior research project with the marine lab was conducted in the lower Caloosahatchee estuary and examined recruitment time of decapods and reef resident fishes to artificial oyster-reef habitat.
