Our New Board Member
Before joining our team in 2017, Jacqueline Egger has been working as a biology teacher at the Kantonsschule Hohe Promenade in Zurich, Switzerland, for more than 10 years. She has earned a Master from the University of Zurich and she has always had a profound interest in marine science. She has been involved in a number of projects, e.g. as field assistant in a research project on sharks in Florida. In the summer 2018, Jackie was elected as new board member of the Mériscope. Last November, she has succesfully completed several trainings at the Institut Maritime du Québec and is now a fully licensed boat captain under Canadian Law.
Jackie is directing an education program named MérisCool, which will be launched in 2019. She will give up her teaching career by the end of July 2019 and will put her skills to the service of the Mériscope. Welcome to the team, Jackie – we will do more than just cross our fingers to make this program a success !!
