Born and raised in Southern California, Zosha always had an innate love for the ocean. After earning her B.S. in Marine Biology from University of California, Santa Cruz she decided to pursue her dreams and share her passions with others. From the kelp forests of Catalina Island, to the endless ribbons of coral of the Great Barrier Reef, Zosha has traveled the world teaching students about the wonders of the oceans.
Zosha is a strong believer that connection is a direct gateway to conservation. Ocean Youth Academy gives Zosha the opportunity to continue to connect students from all backgrounds with the ocean and our natural world. When she's not teaching, you can find Zosha diving, body surfing, horseback riding or gardening.
