Alyssa Irizarry
Senior Vice President @Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Programs
Alyssa’s love for the natural world was shaped by exploring the forested streams in New York’s Hudson Valley and the waves of the Jersey Shore. She attended Tufts University and studied art history, environmental studies, and studio art. While living abroad in Baja California Sur, Mexico, she studied coastal and marine ecosystems and discovered a way to combine her two passions—environmental advocacy and art—by conducting research on the use of sea turtle murals as an education tool by conservation groups. Alyssa has been an educator at The Science Barge, The Florida Aquarium, and The Island School, where she taught Land & Environmental Art and led community outreach activities. Prior to Bow Seat, Alyssa managed marketing and communications at The School for Field Studies. Alyssa is passionate about helping students of all ages discover, explore, and express their relationship with the natural world.
