Kirsten joined Galveston Bay Foundation as part-time Oyster Shell Recycling Assistant in March 2021. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Science in marine biology from Texas A&M at Galveston in 2003, she has held positions in both the public and private sectors related to conservation. Her professional experiences include offshore Platform Observer, Environmental Investigator with the City of Houston’s Bureau of Pollution Control, Environmental Sampling Technician at Marathon’s Texas City refinery, and Environmental Compliance Specialist at Johnson Space Center. Most recently, she was part of the crew at the Environmental Institute of Houston contracted by the EPA to conduct the National Coastal Condition Assessment for the Texas and Louisiana coasts. Early on in her career, Kirsten adopted the motto “think globally, act locally”, and she looks forward to continuing Galveston Bay Foundation’s mission to preserve and enhance the Bay for generations to come. Kirsten enjoys spending time with friends and family, as well as being outdoors with her dog Raven.
