Genaye Domenico

After obtaining her degree, Genaye Domenico earned her PADI dive master in Honduras, completed an internship off the southern tip of Africa with white sharks, worked in loggerhead sea turtle conservation in Cape Verde, Africa, spent one summer managing a sea turtle summer camp in North Carolina, and lived remotely to gather salmon migration data during the sockeye runs in the Kenai Wilderness Refuge. Genaye also worked on commercial fisheries vessels out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska as a NOAA contracted Ground Fisheries Observer. Currently, she is waiting to return to Mozambique to continue her labors for the Marine Megafauna Foundation, an organization specializing in whale shark and manta ray data collection and conservation.

Her career path was balanced with many, many waitressing and bartending shifts. Genaye loves traveling or tide-pooling, and is always happy to geek out about anything under the sea.
