CELP Welcomes New Communications & Outreach Coordinator

Seattle, WA — CELP is pleased to welcome, Kaeli Fertal, to the team as the Communications & Outreach Coordinator. A new full-time position, Kaeli will be managing CELP’s communications across all media platforms as well as coordinating outreach events across the state. Keep an eye on our social media and events page for a chance to come say hi!

Kaeli has always been captivated by the ocean; her fascination with marine ecosystems nourished by summers spent exploring the rocky coastlines of New England and pestering aquarium docents with an endless stream of questions. She earned her B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of Rhode Island in 2013 and has since worked in a variety of settings from environmental compliance monitoring and fisheries assessment to scientific research and informal education. Each new experience brought her closer to discovering her role in the movement to build a sustainable and environmentally just future for all. Kaeli is excited to get to work utilizing her educational background and analytical research skills to bridge the gap between scientific consensus, the general public, and policymakers.

When she isn’t passionately advocating for Washington’s waterways, you can usually find Kaeli with her husband and adorable pup Finley exploring the great outdoors, enjoying a local craft beer, or plotting the next adventure.
