Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, Brittany Zepernick was captivated by the tapestry of underwater seascapes that exist in exotic tropical oceans. Visions of colorful coral reefs and tropical fish originally peaked her interest in aquatic ecosystems. As she got older, however, it was a drinking water crisis that ultimately focused her interests on the freshwater systems in her own backyard.
