A Bright Future
With a heart full of gratitude, I am writing to announce my retirement as Executive Director of O’Neill Sea Odyssey effective December 31, 2018, nearly 20 years after Jack O’Neill hired me to run the program. I’ve been contemplating this change for awhile, and now is the right time to turn leadership over to someone who can lead the organization into a very bright future.
O’Neill Sea Odyssey has a top-notch Board of Directors, staff and volunteers, as well as generous donors who support Jack’s vision of getting young students onto Monterey Bay to learn science and to use that powerful knowledge to become ocean and watershed stewards. I've had what I think is the world's most awesome job, with the best colleagues one could ever want.
The executive director position has been posted at sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/npo/d/executive-director/6558157207.html for the next 60 days. The goal is for the successful candidate to start October 1 and to work with our team for a smooth transition. While I look forward to taking time off, I will of course stay active in ocean protection.
I want to thank you for your support of our program, our students and our ocean, and for all you do!
All my best,
