Ocean Wise Account Representative, Eastern Canada
As a Vancouver native, growing up on the West Coast instilled a passion for the ocean at a very young age. Deirdre’s profound love for sustainably sourced seafood spawned her career in conservation which led her to complete a B.Sc. at the University of Guelph with a specialization in Marine and Freshwater Biology. She later moved to Toronto where she specialized in Marketing at Ryerson University and spent several years in media at the Food Network before joining the Ocean Wise team in March of 2015. Her love of food and science brings a unique perspective to the NGO world – when she’s not checking out the latest and greatest that the Toronto food scene has to offer, Deirdre is traveling the world diving in some of the best spots on the planet. She has always been a strong advocate for sustainable seafood and truly believes in education as a powerful tool to implement change. As the Eastern Account Representative at Ocean Wise, Deirdre is responsible for ensuring the program’s continued growth and expansion in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Her duties include new partnership development and management for Eastern provinces, educational outreach, event planning, grant writing and social media.
