Jen Leahy brings 15 years of experience supporting fish and wildlife conservation to the TRCP. Her love of adventure—and salmon fishing—eventually led her from the Pacific Northwest to Alaska, where she spent several seasons working as a wilderness tour guide before planting her roots in the coastal community of Seward.

Prior to joining the TRCP in January 2020, Leahy served as the communications director at the Seward Chamber of Commerce, where she brought fresh perspectives to her work in sustainable tourism and rural economic development. Previously, she worked with fishing interests to reduce the bycatch of valuable species like Chinook salmon and halibut in Alaska’s federal fisheries.

Leahy holds a bachelor’s degree from Washington State University with an emphasis in political science and sustainable development. In her free time, you’ll find her foraging, fishing, and hunting across Alaska’s legendary public lands and waters.
