Biography

Kristin Sherwood is the Director of Programs at FishChoice, a technology-first organization that believes online platforms can transform the seafood industry by giving thousands of businesses the information they need to take action on sustainability. Kristin has more than 20 years of experience at nonprofits and foundations, with a focus on developing strategic programs and partnerships that support marine and coastal conservation.   Kristin’s role at FishChoice is to oversee the tools and activities needed to ensure the long term success of the organization’s two primary programs, FishChoice.com and FisheryProgress.org. Over the last five years, she has led the growth and adoption of FisheryProgress.org – the one-stop-shop for tracking fishery improvement project (FIP) progress. The site now has 95% of global FIPs listed and thousands of users from around the world. Kristin is currently spearheading an effort to integrate social responsibility and human rights reporting with environmental reporting  on the website. Before joining FishChoice, Kristin launched the Conservation Partnership Initiative for The Nature Conservancy,  a capacity-building program that supported robust partnership development across the Conservancy’s regions and programs. Prior to that, she was a Program Officer at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and led the 5-year Coastal Ecosystem-based Management international grant-making program.  Earlier in her career, Kristin lived abroad in Belize, Palau and the Philippines and worked on community-based coral reef conservation issues. She holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Resource Management from James Cook University in Australia. Kristin is an avid traveler, and finds great joy in walking for miles in unknown cities, exploring markets of all kinds, taking photos, doing yoga and snorkeling or SCUBA diving when near an ocean.
