My name is Madison Bolduc and I am a 2019 graduate from Arizona State University. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Conservation Biology and a minor in Sustainability. Before entering the MCM program I started a position as a Conservation Steward for the Department of Environmental Protection in Portland, Maine. Growing up along the Maine coast and working as a deckhand on my friend’s lobster boat in high school cultivated my passion for marine conservation. This passion was further solidified through my experiences volunteering at a sea turtle rehabilitation center in Mexico and spending a semester studying in Costa Rica, ultimately leading me to the MCM program. In the future, I hope to work towards a career in fishery management or work for a non-profit where I can help implement cohesive marine environmental solutions. My outside interests include boating, rock climbing, cooking, and spending time with my two labs, Oliver and Olivia.
