Meet Dale Kline!
Dale lived and worked at Forfar from June 2015 to August 2016. During her time at the field station, she learned more than she expected!
"Forfar gave me experience not only in marine bio, but also botany, geology, diving, carpentry, plumbing, car and boat maintenance, trail management, painting, and the invaluable skill of keeping your wits about you when things go pear-shaped. That breadth of knowledge has helped me branch out from my field and make connections others would not. You have to get good at so many things at Forfar that you come out of it with way more experience than you bargained for!"
She credits her experience, from the teaching, the exploration, the team, and the island, and it's role in shaping her as a "cooler, competent, and confident person."
Today, she is the Social Media Manager for the Smithsonian Gardens, an Artist for Trader Joe’s, and a volunteer diver for the Baltimore Aquarium. She still loves diving and hiking and gardening, but has gained a bit of a fearless taste for adventure.
Thank you Dale!
