Melissa

Office Manager

I have been a member of The Hammond River Angling Association my whole life! Growing up, I was involved in many events, like Fishing Derbies, Expos, Annual Dinner & Auction and even helping build the Conservation Center. The Hammond holds a special place in my heart. I have many fond memories of fishing here with my siblings and love making new memories with my own children.

I am a nature enthusiast, who loves fishing, hiking, and exploring. 

 When not in the office, I can be found outside exploring with my 2 young boys!

I love this job and look forward to many more projects in the near future!

Environmental Scientist

I joined the HRAA team in 2017, working as an environmental technician during the summers. I graduated with a BSc in Biology and minor in Earth Science at STFX in 2020 and I'm aiming to apply what I have learned to continue helping the HRAA with its conservation, education and restoration work.

I have the opportunity to work as the Camp Director and to learn more about the Hammond River and what it means to different people. I am very happy that I am part of a team and an organization that is committed to protect the Hammond River.
