My name is Jocelyn Marquez and I grew up in a Texas bordertown where agriculture was a dominant commercial enterprise. This led me to become passionate about nature-based solutions and environmental health. I graduated with a Master’s degree in biology from The George Washington University where I conducted research on the impact of climate change on ecological interactions, particularly focusing on the biocontrol agents found in organic farms in Virginia. I am excited to continue my work with climate change ecology as an Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan Climate Fellow with the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In my free time, I enjoy Latin dancing, cooking and hiking!
