CASG’s fiscal team grows by two
Katie Valentine

California Sea Grant is excited to welcome two new fund managers to our fiscal team! The fiscal team does critical work at CASG, serving as the team responsible for the accounting activities of our statewide program with research projects, fellowships and extension services throughout California. Fund managers are responsible for preparing financial reports, maintaining bookkeeping systems, reviewing invoices, processing reimbursements and much more. 

Nitzan Bishri has lived in San Diego since 2015. Starting in 2020, he has worked at UC San Diego, starting as a TA and moving to Fund Management in 2021. Nitzan enjoys reading, hiking, spending time with family and a lot of beach time.

San Diego native Vivian Le joined California Sea Grant in late 2021. She supports Sea Grant in their fiscal related work and manages state, NMFS and Knauss fellowships. She graduated in 2020 with a degree in Art History and Global Cultures from the University of California, Irvine. Outside of work, she enjoys boxing, reading, ceramics and making collage art. 

Welcome, Nitzan and Vivian!
