Carly hails from Oregon and has always had a love for the outdoors. Ever since childhood, she’s always had an awareness of environmental issues and the need to protect our natural resources. After getting her graduate degree in Sustainability from the University of Oregon, she moved down to San Diego to be closer to the ocean and sunshine. She had always dreamed of volunteering for Surfrider and got involved immediately. She has been the Climate Change Committee co-lead for two years now and is excited to get more involved in a larger capacity on the EC. In her spare time, Carly loves to paddleboard, hike, and spend time with her new baby.
