Katie Fagan grew up on the coast of Maine, sailing on Casco Bay and fishing in remote Maine ponds, so joining W20 to bring awareness about the threats facing these beloved areas was a natural decision for her. She has been an Overseer at the New England Aquarium for the past six years and has been inspired by the Aquarium’s valuable worldwide ocean conservation work. She joined the W20 board in 2014 and kicked off her involvement by co-chairing the “Heroes of the Oceans” celebration, an event recognizing the many communities in Massachusetts that enacted plastic bag and or polystyrene bans. Since moving to Boston, she’s become actively engaged with other local environmental groups, advocating for strong legislation that will further W2O’s mission of protecting our oceans. Katie is a member of the Advocacy in Action committee within W2O.
