Gina Hebert works closely with the President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Scientific Officer to support Woodwell Climate’s programs, initiatives, and daily operations. She also manages Board relations and leads the planning and execution of Board meetings and events.
For Hebert, working at Woodwell Climate is like coming full circle. She has a formal education grounded in science, decades of nonprofit management experience, and an appreciation for the necessity of effective communications and public engagement.
She came to Woodwell Climate from the Marine Biological Laboratory, where she spent more than 20 years in the Communications department. As a member of MBL’s senior management, she played a key role in organizational planning and implementing operational efficiencies between scientific and administrative departments.
Hebert earned a degree in Environmental Science & Biology at Allegheny College. She has conducted field research at Harvard Forest in central MA and in the expansive saltmarshes of coastal NC.
Along with her husband and three kids, Hebert enjoys the outdoors—their family spends as much time as they can on and near the ocean.
