Julie Leibach has joined North Carolina Sea Grant as a science writer/digital content specialist.
“We are already seeing how Julie’s skills are improving our communications products,” notes Susan White, Sea Grant executive director. “And her friendly personality is a great fit for working with our team, partners and the public.”
Leibach writes and edits articles, blog posts and social media about the program’s wide-ranging research, education and outreach efforts.
“I’m grateful to be part of a team entirely devoted to stewarding the coast and its communities,” Leibach says. “Having grown up in Florida, I know how precious those resources are.”
