Bio
Miranda Scalzo graduated from Seattle University in 2012 with a BA in Ecological Systems and a minor in Spanish. From a young age Miranda was inspired by the ocean and grew up exploring the beaches of northern California. This inspiration eventually led her to volunteering at the Seattle Aquarium and becoming scuba certified. She also brings a love for international environmental service projects. She has studied and volunteered in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Spain. For the last 4.5 years she worked for the Washington chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC). She developed many skills including strategy development and project management as an Executive Assistant. At her chapter, she managed the Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities working group, enhancing her commitment to environmental justice and Indigenous led conservation. At Bren, she will specialize in Coastal Resources Management and Conservation Planning with a focus in Strategic Environmental Communication and Media. Through research and collaboration with communities, Miranda intends to help expand marine protected areas and contribute to the protection of 1/3 of the world’s oceans by 2030.
