    Have you ever met someone who is good with technology, super artistic, super creative, and also a naturalist and lover of the great outdoors? If you hadn't before, now you have! Meet Caroline Casals, new Vital Signs staffer. Caroline is full time GMRI Education Platform Specialist, spending half of her time focusing on the Vital Signs Program and half of her time thinking about LabVenture!.

I want to support my claim about Caroline with some evidence. Here it is:

Snail print by Caroline



Caroline made this snail print in college (she went to UVM). She has more great artwork that she's made including a poster on ferns that hangs next to her desk and a ceramic teapot that she has brought in and let us use for tea time. It's beautiful.

Caroline knows about marine species, plants, and amphibians too! Finally another salamander-lover on the team with me. She's done fieldwork in Costa Rica, and she has volunteered on the Gulf of Maine shrimp survey for the last two summers. Not only does she have a wealth of knowledge as you can see in her species expert comments (Moss Boss) but she is always eager to learn more. That's been really helpful in her early work here on the Vital Signs team.

Caroline has been a great addition to the GMRI Education Team since she joined us in 2012, and has been a great addition to the Vital Signs team since February. Here's some of what Caroline has been up to:

And more!

I hope you've enjoyed getting to Caroline a little, and be on the look out for more from Moss Boss.
