Daisy’s history in the seafood industry runs deep, starting at the early age of 9 in her family’s seafood business in New Mexico. Her father supplied fresh seafood to high-end restaurants in Albuquerque and Northern New Mexico and later opened several seafood markets that her mother operated. After leaving New Mexico, Daisy spent a few years in Atlanta, working with a small distributor specializing in sushi grade tuna.
In 2006 she relocated to the Pacific Northwest where she joined a chain of grocery stores called New Seasons Market. She is currently the Program & Category Manager- Seafood for New Seasons Market in the Portland Metro, and New Leaf Community Markets in Northern California. She is a champion for sustainable seafood, sourcing product and building relationships with small, local wild capture fisheries and global aquaculture operations.
Daisy’s commitment to sustainable fisheries extends beyond sourcing; she serves on the board of the Salish Center for Sustainable Fishing Methods and the Seafood Shelf-Life Advisory Committee—a NOAA Saltonstall-Kennedy project.

Tracy has developed water treatment technology, designs for hydrologic restoration, and citizen science programs with over 1.6million users to obtain publicly available environmental data.
While Tracy’s day job as the US Coastal Modeling Manager for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is to advance our understanding of our earth systems and threats to humans. She spends her “spare time” as the science communicator Inspector Planet (among other exciting activities). Inspector Planet, uses social media and a variety of art forms to engage and empower the scientist in all of us to investigate, communicate, and solve environmental problems. Her goal is to bridge the gap between scientists and the public as a strategy to spark behavioral change towards more sustainable lifestyles. Through this, Tracy has learned the “do’s” and “don’ts” of science communication and is on a mission to share what she has learned with other scientists and those in science related fields. Tracy co-produces a STEM comic book called “Seekers of Science”, creates videos and environmental wrap songs, and runs the STEM Camp, Mission: Tampa Bay. You may have seen Tracy on Science Channel, National Geographic, Myth Busters, Weather Channel, Fox or CBS; in Marvel’s Unstoppable Wasp comics, or as Xylem YSI’s Mission Water, Water Hero.
