Senior Field Representative, Georgia
As Oceana’s Georgia Field Representative, Hermina builds on-the-ground support for Oceana’s U.S. campaigns in the coastal state of Georgia.
Hermina Glass-Hill grew up in inner-city Atlanta. Family trips to the Sea Islands of coastal Georgia and South Carolina awakened her love for the ocean and nature. Later travels to Africa and the Caribbean Islands expanded her imagination and broadened her worldview about nature, history, people, and culture.
Prior to joining Oceana, Hermina served as the research historian for the National Center for Civil and Human Rights where she learned the value of hard-won struggles for racial equality and ocean justice during the Civil Rights Movement.
She lives with her husband in Midway, GA, a town forty miles south of Savannah.
