Becky Furey is the Program Director for the Mariana Islands Nature Alliance (MINA). She is a Saipan-native with over eight years experience working in the nonprofit sector, grants and program management, and building local capacity in natural resource management and environmental stewardship. Her passion for the environment drives her to help MINA continue conservation efforts throughout the CNMI. Coming from a family of sea-faring people, it was only natural that she would desire to explore and protect the CNMI’s natural resources. Her time with MINA, her concern for the natural environment, and her passion for working with communities to ensure the island’s way of life, led her to complete a Master of Science degree in Environmental Policy & Management.
