Assistant Director of Policy Engagement



1201 New York Ave NW, Suite 400

Washington, D.C. 20005

As Assistant Director of Policy Engagement for COMPASS, I work to facilitate constructive discussion and interaction between scientists and decision makers.

Before coming to COMPASS, I spent seven+ years at the Consortium for Ocean Leadership in Washington D.C. working with large ocean research programs such as the Census of Marine Life and the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative. I also managed the Ocean Research Advisory Panel, a science advisory body to the Federal Government.

I received my B.A. from Hood College in Environmental Science and Policy and my M.A. from American University in Global Environmental Policy. I love traveling and being outdoors, especially if I'm running, biking, swimming or hiking!
