Prior to this she worked at Borstein Seafoods and Stavis Seafoods. Her seafood experience spans the states of Alaska, Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington, with hands-on processor plant experience as quality assurance manager, foreman and plant manager. Her passion is teaching people how to be better stewards of the world’s waterways and the creatures sourced from it.
