In today’s episode, we talk with Captain Jeanne Ferrer, a lifelong native of St. Bernard Parish, who graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy in 2006, as a Logistics and Intermodal Transportation major. She is also the recipient of the Women Offshore’s Wavemaker Award for 2022 and an active mentor within the maritime and seagoing military communities. She enjoys coordinating maritime field trips with various local schools and nonprofits to increase maritime exposure to the next generation in her local community.
Today we are talking with her about her methods for community outreach, aimed at elementary, middle, and high school students and educating them about the maritime industry. She focuses on exposure to students realizing that the maritime industry can be a pathway and how important the maritime industry is for the supply chain. It’s a great eye-opening conversation whether you are in the industry or not to hear.
