Dr. Sarah Driscoll

Instructor of Marine Biology

Dr. Sarah Driscoll

Sarah Driscoll Unity College Faculty

Sarah Driscoll received a dual B.A. from the University of New Hampshire and a MLA from Harvard University. Sarah is currently finishing her PhD in Environmental Studies at Antioch University. 

As a marine ecologist, most of her work centers on highly mobile vertebrates, including sharks, sea turtles, and stingrays. Her current study sites are located in the Bahamas where she works out of the Bimini Biological Field Station. Sarah was a Senior Biologist and Assistant Diving Safety Officer for the New England Aquarium (NEA) for 15+ years. During this time, she created a marine biology program for students which included Open Water SCUBA certification and underwater research methods as part of the educational platform. Sarah also led international conservation expeditions for NEA, was on the Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) Team, and was a scientific diver for the Smithsonian Institution. She is an instructor for Divers Alert Network (DAN) and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). 

Although most of her research has focused on the marine realm, Sarah truly enjoys the sub-discipline of ecology and is also fascinated by terrestrial organisms. She enjoys working with students to help them achieve their educational goals, which is one of the main reasons she began her doctoral studies. Sarah has taught in academia for several years and is honored to be a part of Unity College’s commitment to the environment.
