Nathalie Morison

Coastal Resilience Specialist, NH Department of Environmental Services Coastal Program

Since joining the NHDES Coastal Program in 2015, Nathalie has helped staff the NH Coastal Risk and Hazards Commission (CRHC) and continues to coordinate state agency and municipal implementation of CRHC recommendations through the NH Setting SAIL project. An active CAW member, Nathalie is one of the female brains behind CAW’s social media and annual King Tide photo contests. When asked what she loves most about CAW, Nathalie says: “The level of optimism and familial collaborative spirit among CAW members is both motivating and contagious. No task or challenge is too great for this group of dedicated adaptation professionals.”

Nathalie holds a Master of Environmental Management from Duke Univeristy and a B.A. in Marine Biology from Occidental College. Prior to returning home to NH, Nathalie served as a Planning and Policy Analyst for the Hawaii Coastal Zone Management Program in Honolulu, HI. When not at work, you can find Nathalie volunteering as an Alternate Member of the City of Portsmouth Conservation Commission, indulging in French cheese plates, experimenting in her at-home test kitchen, and day-dreaming of her next Caribbean vacation.
