Meet Estelle Robichaux, Our Assistant Director Of Regional Engagement!
We’re incredibly excited to welcome Estelle Robichaux to the COMPASS team as our new Assistant Director of Regional Engagement in the Portland, OR office! We see so many opportunities to support scientists as they seek to communicate the changes they’re seeing, and connect their work to conversations about the environment. Estelle will be leading our work to create and capitalize on opportunities for scientists to engage with people making tough environmental decisions at the state and regional levels throughout the West on a range of topics.
Estelle comes to us from Environmental Defense Fund, where she’s been leading efforts to connect science and decision-making for large-scale ecosystem restoration in coastal Louisiana and throughout the Gulf Coast region. She’s excited to work now in the West, where both scientists and society are seeing stark changes and facing thorny environmental challenges. As COMPASS continues to navigate the complex interplay of topics in this region, Estelle's experience bringing together people from across institutions, fields, and backgrounds will be invaluable. Welcome, Estelle! We’re thrilled to have you.
