Dr. David Shafer PhD ’87/environmental consultant

Dr. David J. Shafer PhD ’87 and his wife, Jennifer, are partners in Shafer Consulting in Sarasota, Florida, an environmental consulting firm specializing in communication of science and science-policy issues through analysis, outreach and creative design.  They list many local area environmental organizations as clients.  The Sarasota Herald Tribune featured them as the co-executive directors of the Science and Environment Council of Southwest Florida, a group of organizations who promote and advance science and environmental issues.

After Wabash, David earned his PhD in Zoology (Population Ecology) from the University of Hawaii, where he met Jennifer, a PhD from University of Hawaii who has taught biology and biostatistics in marine science programs.  When they moved from Hawaii to Florida a few years ago, it was a natural transfer of interests in environment, conservation, and preservation to their new home state.

Congratulations, David!
