With passionate perseverance, she shares this legendary tale in the hope that it inspires respect and care of the oceans. “If sharing this epic story inspires one person to become a greater steward of our oceans, then I will be delighted. The more, the better, of course.” She lives in Southwest Florida, where she enjoys connecting with dolphins on the water and at the beach.
