After three years with FISH OF SANCAP as executive director, Alicia Tighe Orgera is leaving the organization to relocate to the Washington, D.C. area with her husband Ryan and their eight-month old son, Emilio. Alicia joined FISH in January 2019 to work with President and CEO, Maggi Feiner ensuring that the operations of FISH continued to meet the demands of the growing organization. Previously working in the United States Senate for ten years as a legislative policy advisor and outreach director before her arrival at FISH, Alicia is planning to take time away from her career to devote to Emilio.
“Working with FISH and the Sanibel/Captiva community has been an immense honor and incredibly rewarding. The islands are such a special place because of the people here,” said Orgera. “The commitment to community is unlike anything I have experienced and I feel grateful to have played a small part in FISH’s role in making the islands a better place to live, work, and visit.”
Please join FISH in saying farewell to Alicia. “Alicia is truly a special person who made a difference in our great community every day,” says Maggi Feiner, President & CEO, FISH. “We will all miss her energy, input and dedication to our mission in serving island neighbors.”
