Hi, I’m Brittany!

Hello! My name is Brittany Diorio, the creator of The Invasive Fin. The ocean has always been an enormous passion of mine, and I have dedicated my life to helping it. I earned my degree in Marine Biology with a concentration on Sea Turtle Rehabilitation.

After graduation, I worked in many areas around Florida rehabilitating sick sea turtles and releasing them back to the wild. I assumed I would work with sea turtles for the rest of my life, but the invasive species, lionfish, found me by complete accident.
