Deb Castellana’s life and professional career have always centered on the ocean, from teaching scuba diving to working in the yachting industry. For the past 8 years, she has transitioned into the nonprofit sector, where she has consulted with several different nonprofits, including Mission Blue and Heirs to Our Oceans. She serves as a Board Director for On Wings of Care, and on the Advisory Council for Hello Ocean.

When not immersed in her consulting business and ocean advocacy, Deb tends her organic vegetable garden and plans where her next scuba diving vacation will take her. Deb lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband and their border collie, Sophie.
