ROSA Welcomes New Team Members

Meet Tricia Perez

We are also pleased to welcome Tricia Perez as ROSA’s Research Project Manager. In this role, Tricia will develop, lead, and issue regional fisheries and offshore wind Requests for Proposals on behalf of ROSA. She will also support the ROSA team with strategic planning and our broader agenda around objective science.

Tricia joins us from the U.S. Department of Energy Wind Energy Technologies Office where she supported the offshore wind environmental and community engagement portfolios. She began with DOE as a NOAA Sea Grant Knauss Marine Policy Fellow in 2022. She holds a Masters in Fisheries Oceanography from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST) and served as a Northeast Fisheries Observer for 3 years throughout New England.

Meet Mindy Hamlin

ROSA has a great story to tell, and Mindy Hamlin, our first Communications Associate, has come on board to help us tell it. Drawing on her 25 years of experience in public relations, storytelling, and reputation management, Mindy will guide ROSA’s communication efforts, including writing our newsletter and launching a new social media program. She will also grow recognition of ROSA as the organization created by the offshore wind development and fishery industries to advance collaborative, science-backed research on the effects of offshore wind on fish and fisheries.

Prior to launching her consultancy, Hamlin Communications, she was the director of communications at Raleigh-Durham International Airport and has worked with airports, colleges and universities, and government agencies across the country.
