“It is inspirational to be working for an organization that is dedicated to protecting the local fishing industries and marine environment which are integral to the character and lifestyle of Cape Cod.”
Brigid joined the Fishermen’s Alliance in May 2019. Prior to joining the organization Brigid worked in fisheries conservation and biosecurity programs for the New South Wales state government in Australia. She focused on marine protected area planning, threatened species management and aquatic biosecurity (pest and disease mangement). Having participated in a variety of projects with commercial fishers and aquaculture farmers and seen their dedication to their industries and the environment, she is excited to now be working for the Fishermen’s Alliance.
Brigid grew up in New York and spent summers and extensive periods of time on the Cape since childhood where she developed her fascination with the coast. Brigid earned a Masters in Environmental Science at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. She is passionate about working with the local community and organizations to promote the betterment of natural environments and local industries.
Brigid works with the development team and looks forward to getting to know those who support the Fishermen’s Alliance.
