Earlier this year, our friends over at Women Offshore — an online organization whose mission is to shine a light on women in the offshore and maritime industries — launched a monthly podcast.
In the most recent episode, Ally Cedeno, founder of Women Offshore, interviews Chief Officer Alaina Basciano, on board the USNS Henson, an oceanographic research vessel. She’s a licensed USCG unlimited tonnage master — and she’s just 30 years old.
In the interview, Alaina shares some of her stories from the sea, as well as how she was able to overcome some of the challenges she’s faced in her career.
Many thanks to Ally and Women Offshore for letting us share their work with our community!
