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. I also serve as Branch Manager for Fisheries Policy and Economics.

Background:

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.
