Hoai graduated from Northeastern University with a BS in Environmental Science, Geology. Her passion in environmental conservation and protection was inspired by a study abroad in Iceland where she camped, hiked, and conducted field studies across the country. Prior to joining CLF, Hoai worked for the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources in the Turks and Caicos Islands, where she helped to rehabilitate and monitor the local reef systems. Prior to that, she spent six months in a German botanical institute researching the efficacy of micro-algae in treating carbamazepine pollutants in the local wastewater.
Hoai enjoys spending her free time practicing squash, hiking, or reading.
