Mizeras, whose new role and focus will complement the work the Center is already doing with its many partners, will work in close partnership with leaders across marketing, tourism and philanthropic industries.
“My goal is to build and strengthen relationships. Alaska SeaLife Center is so much more than simply a fun way to spend the day in Seward. We have amazing educational programs, cutting edge science and research as well as being an excellent ambassador for Alaska and our sea life. It is my job to clearly share and communicate all that we have to offer as well as to find donors and partners to move our Center and our science forward.”
Mizeras brings over ten years of experience in the field of marketing and has worked both in for profit and non-profit arenas. Lexie has a B.A. in Marketing and a Masters in Business Administration. In addition to her current role she also is a term instructor at the University of Alaska Anchorage teaching Marketing courses.
The Alaska SeaLife Center is a private non-profit research institution and visitor attraction which generates and shares scientific knowledge to promote understanding and stewardship of Alaska’s marine ecosystems.
