Originally from Portland, Oregon, Jacy came to the Bren School as a Latin American Fisheries Fellow after spending several years submerged in the marine conservation space of Mexico’s Gulf of California. He worked as both a field station manager and field instructor teaching undergraduate marine conservation courses for Prescott College. He received a Bachelor’s in Conservation Biology and Latin American Studies, and a Masters specializing in Coastal Marine Resources Management from the Bren School. Jacy’s graduate project applied tradeoff analyses to evaluate bioeconomic outcomes for an array of fisheries and vaquita conservation policies in the northern gulf. As the Program Manager for the Latin American Fisheries Fellowship Program—a collaboration between the Bren School, SFG, and the Walton Foundation—Jacy is particularly excited to find ways to grow and leverage an emerging network of interdisciplinary marine resource management leaders, with an aim to achieve greater outcomes for sustainable resource management and coastal livelihoods across Latin America.
