Anna Fahey


Anna is Director of Strategic Communication for Sightline Institute whose mission is to make the Northwest a global model of sustainability. She grew up in Anacortes, Washington, beachcombing in the San Juans and working on her parents’ commercial fishing boats. Her family goes back four generations in the Seattle area — and in fact, her grandfather, George Fahey, was president of Seattle Audubon from 1931 to 1933! Anna has a BA from Smith College and an MA in political communication from the University of Washington.

Birds remind us to slow down, listen, and look at our environment. They remind us we’re all connected. A chickadee’s song can instantly take me back to happy memories from my own childhood, and watching birds with my kids helps me impart a curiosity and wonder about the world around us.
