Project AWARE News

After seven years of unlimited dedication and leadership, Jenny Miller Garmendia, current Executive Director of Project AWARE Foundation, is leaving her position to resume her research and work in marine policy.

For the past seven years, Jenny led the Foundation through major growth and restructuring. Her accomplishments include the launching of the new Project AWARE in 2011 and a major initiative to engage the global tribe of divers in protecting the ocean planet.

"Thanks to Jenny, Project AWARE can look forward to a bright future. We thank her for her leadership and work over the years," said Drew Richardson, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Jenny will remain at the helm while Project AWARE recruits a new Executive Director. "I have been fortunate to work with such an amazing staff and volunteer divers at the Foundation. Project AWARE is in a great position to make a real difference in ocean protection and it was wonderful to be a part of it," said Jenny.
