Meet The Staff: Lucy Heller
Meet our Communications and Maryland Outreach Coordinator
based out of the Maryland & DC Office
Lucy’s love for the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland comes from growing up with Charm City Pride and spending summers since she was a child on the Eastern Shore. Lucy enjoys outdoor activities such as; sailing, crabbing, and paddle boarding as well as going on hikes with her dog, Natalie Boh. It was through her appreciation for the bay that Lucy wanted to pursue the Chesapeake Conservation Corps, where she got matched with the Alliance and is now the Communications and Maryland Outreach Coordinator.
Before becoming a Chesapeake Conservation Corps member, Lucy went to school in Ohio at the College of Wooster and got her B.A in English. Lucy used her time at college to the fullest by participating in as many student-run activities as she could. This included being part of the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team, DJing for the student-run radio station, volunteering at the local wilderness center, and helping coordinate events on the campus such as concerts and movie nights. After graduation, Lucy moved to Boston for a year where she worked for Autodesk, a multinational software corporation as their communications and events specialist.
Lucy is a proud graduate of the Chesapeake Conservation Corps and is excited to work with the Alliance full time!
