Summer 2022 staff

Dalton Brauer

Marine Science Program Director

Dalton grew up on Long Island where she spent almost her entire childhood outdoors. “I became a nature nerd. I started sailing a sunfish at the age of 7. I continued both of these passions through high school and college, where I attended Cornell University and received a Bachelor’s in Ecology and was a member of the Cornell Sailing Team.” Dalton then furthered her education with a Master’s in Environmental Management and Sustainability at the University of Malta while becoming a sailing instructor and first Opti Racing Coach for the Royal Malta Yacht Club. After returning from Malta, due to COVID, Dalton worked at Boothbay Hannafords, where she first saw the BSSC t-shirt, and thought that BSSC sounded like the place for her. “I worked as the Waterfront Director last summer and love that I am able to share my passions with future naturalists and sailors, and look forward to doing so again this summer.
