Communications and Marine Debris Specialist
We are excited to welcome Oriana Smy to the DCC team! We will have her full-time for a summer position until she goes down to part-time in the fall as she prepares to enter a Masters program at the University of British Columbia. Oriana is an experienced communicator and project manager, and graduated from the University of Victoria with a BA Honours degree in Anthropology with an interdisciplinary focus in Environmental Studies. Her research focus has been on equitable solutions for addressing marine debris in coastal British Columbia. Over the summer, Oriana will help with the Decade Collaborative Center's communications work. Shifting into the fall, Oriana is building out a knowledge synthesis of marine debris projects, policies, and priorities in the Northeast Pacific region.
