Rise Above Plastics

John Weber

Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager

Being the Mid Atlantic Regional Manager keeps me close to the ocean, waves, and beaches while I assist the volunteers and Chapters from Montauk, NY to Virginia Beach, VA.
 
My post college jobs were at membership-based nonprofits working on health and environmental issues.  I moved to the beach to be near the waves and volunteering for Surfrider just became part of my life.  I am so lucky that the skills I learned in my day jobs helped my Surfrider volunteer work.  I was honored to become the first employee on the East Coast. 
 
It's the greatest job in the world and Surfrider Foundation has challenged me and made me grow in ways I never imagined.  But most of all I appreciate the volunteers who work so hard to grow their chapters and win local victories.
