She also serves as an Environmental Advisor to the Government of Croatia, Ministry of Culture. Her background in biology, ecology, limnology and marine science, translates in her work in coastal ecosystems conservation and management nationally and internationally. She helped develop and implement major conservation projects in Croatia, and the Adriatic region funded through the GEF, WB, UNEP and EU. The vision, mission and goals in her work are based on the integration of three key areas – teaching, service and research - in order to best practice coastal ecosystem stewardship right now and here. In 2009, she initiated and started the Green Boston Harbor Project (GBH) with a vision that any urban harbor can become green and sustainable area if managed within environmental limitations, while recognizing strength in ecological and human diversities. While at UMass Boston she developed and teaches Intro to Biomimicry course, and started the “Adopt a Student for a Green Job” program that supports most of her undergraduate and graduate students through their educational process and provides employment.
