That’s where Sand Dollar Wallet comes in!

Meet Kelsey

My name is Kelsey Fleming, and I’m a San Diego-based blogger. Having recently graduated from UC San Diego with a bachelor’s in marine biology, I am currently working on a certificate in science communication. Over the years, I’ve worked in laboratory research and science outreach at aquariums, zoos, and environmental research centers.

When I’m not writing, you can find me home brewing, tide pooling, skydiving, playing DnD, or hanging out with my two adopted guinea pigs.
