Sustainable Seafood Advocate Joins Team
June 18, 2020
BOSTON — We are excited to announce a partnership with sustainable seafood advocate Valentine Thomas – a highly sought speaker, author, and chef who’s been featured in numerous media outlets for her travels around the globe to some of the world’s most iconic locations as a freediver and spearfisher.
Valentine joins our team as an ambassador who will introduce the film to new audiences and spread awareness around important issues raised in the documentary.
“My passion for sustainable seafood comes from my love of the sea and the great respect for its resources discovered through diving and harvesting fish on a small scale,” said Thomas. “I’m excited to partner with the filmmakers and share the story about where our seafood comes from and how we can all make a difference as seafood consumers through the choices that we make.”
Born in Montreal, Valentine was trained as a lawyer in Canada and worked in finance in London for six years before leaving it all behind to pursue her passions. Forbes Change-Maker, she quit her job and gave up the urban lifestyle to fiercely advocate for sustainable seafood systems while encouraging people to reconsider their relationship with nature, as well as their own self-confidence, health and wellness.
Look for her at upcoming events around the country.
