Lennon received her BS in Marine Biology and her MS in Marine Science with a focus on fisheries assessment from Hawai’i Pacific University. As part of her thesis work, Lennon completed a stock assessment on the Kona crab fishery in Hawai’i to help guide management decisions for the fishery. After graduating, Lennon worked for the NOAA Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu, where her work focused on applying data-limited assessments to federally managed coral reef fisheries in the Western Pacific. While in Hawaii, she also worked for the ISC, providing support for international working groups that conduct stock assessments of highly migratory species in the North Pacific. Lennon is interested in methods and tools that can be used to assess and manage fisheries to meet both conservation and fishery objectives, aquaculture development, and marine spatial planning. She is also very passionate about field work and freediving.
