Join AltaSea for another installment of Project Blue's live chat series. This week, we welcome Amber Becerra of the Marine Mammal Care Center!
Amber Becerra joined the Board of the Marine Mammal Care Center (MMCC) in November of 2019 with the intention of helping with fundraising because she has a passion for animals. Little did she know what was in store for her in just a few short weeks. Once elected as President in December of 2019, Amber threw herself headfirst into learning everything there is to know about MMCC and reorganizing and fine-tuning the center with an eye toward long term sustainability.
Amber’s background in environmental programs in law school and as the Executive Director and Founder of a Berkeley Law alumni organization has proved to be an invaluable experience that paved the way for her success in this role. Her experience with a multitude of organizations as an attorney and now as the CEO of a real estate development company gives her the business acumen that is necessary to make appropriate budget cuts and financial projections to extend the viability of MMCC until stability can be achieved.
She is thrilled to be on this adventure with her fellow Board members as they strive to take MMCC to new heights.
