Colleen McGee is a biologist for Wild Fish Conservancy. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara where she focused on habitat and ecosystem conservation. She spent the following three years working as a scientific technician for WDFW in western Washington and as an onboard observer on commercial fishing vessels based out of Dutch Harbor, AK. She continued her education with a Master’s of Science in Environmental Policy from American University in Washington, DC where she interned with Defenders of Wildlife. Colleen brings experience with non-governmental, state and federal agencies, along with a deep passion for marine ecosystems and the communities that rely on them.
Colleen is thrilled to be back in the Pacific Northwest and can’t wait to continue exploring all the hiking trails, trailing blackberry patches, and scuba diving spots around Puget Sound.
