Staff Updates for the New Year
The new year brings changes to the CSISS team. Our dedicated Executive Director, Robyn Hooper, returned from parental leave in October, we are glad to welcome her back to guide us through 2023.
Also returning from parental leave is Laura Gaster, stepping into her new role as Field Operations Manager – she will continue to oversee our terrestrial field program in addition to the aquatics fieldwork. Laura brings enthusiasm and energy that we are looking forward to sharing.
Education and Outreach Coordinator, Jess Booth, is continuing her work with CSISS, but has added aquatic outreach programming to her workplan.
Our Aquatic Program Coordinator Kelsey Desilets is with us until the end of April to help with the transition. We plan to hire a field technician and program assistants this spring – stay tuned for job postings and announcements.
We are looking forward to the year ahead, working together with our friends and colleagues across the region.
