A California native, Jaime Neary grew up spending all her time outdoors and quickly made the ocean her second home. She has a B.S. in Marine Biology from UC Santa Cruz and a J.D. from Vermont Law School—both degrees with focuses in environmental conservation. Her goal is to combine the two interests and help bridge the gap between the science and legislative worlds to create effective and long-lasting change. To date, some of her more notable experiences are working with adaptive marine management, and helping to file a citizen suit in San Diego County for egregious Clean Water Act violations. In her spare time she enjoys: sailing, scuba diving, surfing, swimming, photography, jiu-jitsu and muay thai. Jaime can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
