Assistant Director
Executive Branch


Current IPHC Responsibilities:

Primary assistant to the Executive Director.  In the office, I help keep the operational, administrative, and communications wheels turning in support of our science and management of Pacific halibut.  Outside the office, I represent the IPHC to other agencies and organizations.


I came to the IPHC after serving for many years as a US Navy officer, attracted by the IPHC’s unique combination of science, policy, public service, and the ocean.  My background is in operations and engineering, which have been very useful in supporting our scientific and resource management enterprise.
