Alaska Sea Grant welcomes Anne Gore as our new communications lead. She is based in Anchorage and will oversee Alaska Sea Grant’s communications efforts and media relations. Gore holds a bachelor’s degree in government and environmental studies from Dartmouth College and a master’s in natural resource policy and behavior from the University of Michigan’s School for Environment and Sustainability.
Prior to joining Alaska Sea Grant, she worked at the University of Alaska Anchorage as a development writer and development officer in the Office of Advancement. Her other work includes serving as the communications director for Girl Scouts of Alaska, associate director for development and communications with Audubon Alaska, and the science communications manager for The Wilderness Society in Anchorage. Gore is also a former Knauss Marine Policy Fellow, a competitive national Sea Grant fellowship for graduate students.
“Joining the Alaska Sea Grant team is like coming full circle,” said Gore. “I’m excited to bring my experience and passion for communicating science back to the organization that gave me an amazing opportunity as a graduate student. Sea Grant is doing important work to support coastal communities and I’m honored to be contributing to those efforts here in Alaska.”
Gore enjoys spending time outdoors with her dog, and especially looks forward to “crust skiing” every spring. She also describes herself as “an avid reader with an insatiable love of learning.”
