Sea Sisters founder and Ally CedenoThere's a new episode from the Women Offshore podcast! 

 

This month, our friends at Women Offshore — an online organization whose mission is to shine a light on women in the offshore and maritime industries — talk with Sea Sisters' founder and editor Elizabeth Siminstad.

 

Elizabeth started working on the water in January of 2010 on an oceangoing tugboat in Seattle, Wash. In her first four years working on the water, Elizabeth was the only female on board. She eventually found herself in a fleet rich in diversity.
