About Me: Kirsten Pfister

Hi everyone!

My name is Kirsten Pfister and I will be a Communications, Marketing, and Events Intern this summer with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay! I'm thrilled to be apart of such a great organization and I cannot wait to learn more about Boston's beaches this summer!

Boating off the Coast of Cape Cod
I grew up in Littleton, MA and I will be a junior at the University of New Hampshire in the fall. Growing up, I spent a lot of time at my family's lake house in Nelson, NH. This is where I developed a love for all things water! I absolutely love to paddle-board, waterski, and I just started snorkeling this past year. Outside of the water, I enjoy snow skiing and I'm a diehard Bruins fan. I also have two Goldendoodles, Dakota and Stanley, that I love spending time with.

Snorkeling in St. Martin
So far in my position as an intern with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay, I have worked heavily in communications. From drafting press releases to getting to know the local newspapers, I have helped get the word out about our recent work in the community. In the past few weeks this has focused on the Urban Beach Study and letting the beachfront communities know just how clean their beaches really are. As the summer progresses, I will continue to work in communications while also getting involved in the programming that will take place on the beaches and Boston Harbor Islands. Not only do I look forward to seeing how great the free events on the beach will be this summer, but through all my work with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay I cannot wait to connect even more people from the Boston communities to the gorgeous and clean beaches in the area. With all the awesome programs that Save the Harbor/Save the Bay offers and sponsors, I hope to see all of you out on the beaches this summer!

That's all for now!

- Kirsten
