Trisha MejiaCampaign Manager - Clean Border Water Now
Hi! My name is Melissa. I’m originally from Mexico, but I moved to the US at a young age. I’ve always had a strong connection with the environment and decided to pursue that passion as a career. I recently graduated from CSUSM with a B.A in Environmental Studies. Fun fact about myself: I’m a Capricorn sun and my favorite pass time is reading about stones and crystals :).
Trisha has a science and public health background. She believes environmental health is related to public health. Trisha advocates for clean water, soil, and air as necessities for life. She worked at the Environmental Law & Justice Clinic in law school, advocating for environmental justice in underserved communities.
In September of 2021, Trisha joined Surfrider Foundation as the Clean Border Water Now Campaign Manager. Trisha is dedicated to raising awareness of the severity of the pollution crisis at the U.S./Mexico border, advocating for clean water with key policymakers, and creating positive change in Southern California and Baja California communities.
Trisha loves to surf, hike, practice yoga, practice spirituality, watch the sunset at the beach and travel through California.
