Carey Schafer, M.S.
Project Coordinator
As a Project Coordinator with EcoAdapt, Carey manages the National Adaptation Forum and other Knowledge Exchange programming. She brings expertise in stakeholder engagement, climate change communication, and the natural sciences. Prior to joining EcoAdapt, Carey completed a year-long Science Policy Fellowship with the National Academies Gulf Research Program where she worked with PLACE: SLR, a partnership that aims to increase resilience to sea-level rise throughout the northern Gulf of Mexico. Carey earned her M.S. in Marine Science from the University of South Florida College of Marine Science where she researched carbon storage in mangrove ecosystems and her B.S. in Environmental Science from Tulane University. After spending eight years in the Gulf, Carey recently moved to Seattle and is excited to live amongst the mountains for the first time in her life!
