Hi FishWise readers!
My name is Jodie and I am very excited to have recently joined the FishWise team as an Office Manager in which my primary role is providing administrative support to the FishWise staff.
My love for the ocean began many years ago as a child when my family and I would travel to Santa Cruz to camp and visit the beaches. I went on to receive my B.S. from CSU Sacramento, where following graduation I had the opportunity to live on both the Oregon and Florida coasts. It wasn’t until living in these coastal communities that I really had the opportunity to learn more about the importance of seafood sustainability. Coming back to Santa Cruz where my initial love for the water began, I was inspired to seek a career in which my previous skills and experiences would align with that of an organization making a positive impact on our environment. Prior to FishWise, I hailed from the Hospitality industry, where I held a variety of roles including managing and coordinating all the logistical aspects for a wide variety of events. I am very excited to have the opportunity to combine my interpersonal and organizational skills and passion for the ocean through my position at FishWise.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling to new places, snowboarding, sitting on the beach with a good book and being outside at every opportunity.
