Mikaela is a fish whisperer with a Masters in Oceanography from Rutgers. Before Killian met Mikaela, she knew literally zero things about hermaphrodite fish populations. Now Killian not only knows about how/why they try to measure sex change in black sea bass populations, she also knows—because she definitely asked—exactly how you sex a fish.
Mikaela grew up in Alaska, and puts up with Killian’s constant attempts at comparing her life to the hit 90’s TV show, Northern Exposure. She also did Teach for America, which is probably one of the coolest things a smart person can do. Patriotism!
