A skilled writer, designer, photographer, and editor, Hallee produces and manages a variety of communications products for the National Sea Grant Office, including the Sea Grant Monthly newsletter, the Knauss Blog, and digital factsheets. She has expanded Sea Grant’s interactive communications products through ArcGIS StoryMaps, Adobe Spark, and more. Hallee brings a strong science background to communicating about the breadth of topics and locales that Sea Grant works in, though an area of particular interest for her is coastal resilience and adaptation.

When she’s not working on making science more accessible to the public, Hallee can be found in her kitchen trying out new recipes and spoiling her pup, Maple.
