Dear EcoViva supporters,
The Board of Directors is excited to announce that Ana Luisa Moran Ahern, who has served as Interim Executive Director since November, will be EcoViva’s new Executive Director. The board is excited to support Ana Luisa as she takes the helm during this exciting chapter for EcoViva.
As EcoViva’s Program and Policy Director, Ana Luisa developed meaningful relationships with our partners, the Mangrove Association and AMBAS in El Salvador, and Red COMAL in Honduras. Ana Luisa has leveraged her skills and qualifications in marine conservation to advance our work in mangrove restoration and climate change adaptation. She has lived and worked in Latin America for many years, and brings a unique perspective to EcoViva’s commitment to environmental and economic justice for the communities we work with. Ana Luisa has ably led our transition over the past six months as our Interim Executive Director, and I look forward to continued work with her.
I have served on EcoViva’s Board for nearly 10 years and I’d like to thank past Executive Directors Yael Falicov and Karolo Aparicio, all staff members, and most especially our incredible Board of Directors for their dedication to EcoViva’s mission. Many people helped carry EcoViva to this new chapter, and this collective spirit joins in support and congratulations for Ana Luisa.
As a member of the EcoViva family, I am grateful to have been a part of expanding our organization’s reach to more communities in Latin America. I am looking forward to deepening my relationships with our partners and our dedicated supporters like you.” – Ana Luisa Moran Ahern, EcoViva Executive Director
In the coming months, Ana Luisa will conduct a listening tour across the U.S. to get to know our supporters and partners. On May 30th, 2019, we will be hosting a webinar with Ana Luisa, who will provide program updates and answer any questions you might have about EcoViva’s work. Sign-up for the webinar here.
Please join us in welcoming Ana Luisa Moran Ahern as EcoViva’s new Executive Director!
