Dear Water Log Readers
After working at the Sea Grant Legal Program and Water Log for six years, I will resign as Director of the Legal Program and Sea Grant Law Center this September. Writing for and serving as editor of Water Log has been one of the most rewarding parts of working with the Program but it cannot surpass the enjoyment of working with colleagues such as you in Sea Grant and the greater ocean and coastal community.
It is a bittersweet departure as I relocate to Rhode Island this fall to work in ocean law and outreach with Roger Williams University Law School, the University of Rhode Island School of Marine Affairs, and Rhode Island Sea Grant. I look forward to following the work of Staff Attorneys Josh Clemons and Stephanie Showalter and the incoming Director as the Legal Program and Law Center continue to grow and provide ocean and coastal research and outreach.
It has been an honor to work with and for you.
