Amelia grew up in southwestern Minnesota, before making her way to the shores of Lake Superior to attend the University of Minnesota Duluth. While at UMD, Amelia organized and led trips for the university’s outdoor program, and spent time on the big lake teaching paddling skills. After graduating with a degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, Amelia served as a staff scientist for an engineering company, before joining Alaskan Observers as a National Marine Fisheries Groundfish Observer. In this role, she traveled and lived aboard commercial fishing vessels on the Bering Sea to collect data for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, collect fish samples, and monitor the vessels’ compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
