Job of the Month

Travis Kemnitz, Talent & Culture Coach, Ocean Discovery Institute, since 2002


Published:

Job Description: I help urban students succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). I plan everything from fundraisers to training sessions.

How I Landed Here: I started as a University of san Diego intern, majoring in environmental studies.

Best Moment at Work: When students learn to prepare taxes or handle translation for their parents - and when they graduate from college with STEM degrees.

Worst Moment at Work: When I'm confronted by the depth of the crime and poverty that our students face.

Highlight: When the institute received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring in 2012 - the first time this award was presented in San Diego!
