Growing up, sailing was our major family activity. Wherever we lived, my dad would always find a body of water for us to be on. My family’s best memories were on the water, including an 18-month trip along the East Coast of the U.S. to the Bahamas.
The water is where I first fell in love with the beauty, power and majesty of the natural world and where I came to appreciate what it did for my soul. About ten years ago, my husband, daughter and I repeated that trip. It was magical for me to see my own child’s delight then and now as she spots an osprey nest, catches a Chesapeake Bay striped bass, or watches a blue heron walking through shoreline grasses.
Sadly, this is all threatened in her lifetime. That’s what drew me to the National Wildlife Federation. We’re a big tent organization committed to make a powerful and lasting difference for this generation and the next. I look forward to working with you to make this possible.
Rebecca holds a B.A. in Theatre Arts from The Pennsylvania State University. Rebecca, her husband, teenage daughter, and rescue dog live in Annapolis, Maryland, where she tries to get out in nature and on the water as much as possible. When not playing outdoors, Rebecca enjoys cooking for friends, reading, and taking in the DC metro area’s many cultural offerings.
