Emily is a marine biologist with a focus on science communication and environmental education. Originally hailing from Connecticut, Emily earned a bachelor's degree in Biology and French Studies at Wheaton College MA before returning to her hometown to teach biology at Suffield Academy. She then enrolled in the Three Seas Master’s program through Northeastern University, a life-changing experience that took her from Boston to Panama to the San Juan Islands. This program set her down the science communication path with the goal of connecting communities to the marine environment and actionable, accessible conservation. She is passionate about engaging with the outdoors and ensuring ocean health for generations to come.
Emily serves as Sailors for the Sea Program Manager where she oversees our Clean Regattas and Skippers volunteer programs to engage and activate sailors and boaters to become involved in sustainability and ocean advocacy.
