our staff represents the core team that has the time and energy to make fish for change come to life
Steve is a Colorado native who has been fly fishing most of his life. Several journeys through Central America during off seasons led him to the Bay islands of Honduras.
He found expansive flats empty of any other anglers, yet full of fish: permit, bonefish, tarpon, and more. Steve’s dreams of starting a small, sustainable fly-fishing lodge came to fruition in the Spring of 2008.
Steve earned a Masters in English at Colorado State University and created and taught writing courses at Colorado College including: River-related Literature and Writing through Fly-fishing, Back-packing and Reading and Writing the Rivers and Oceans of Honduras: River and ocean-related literature through salt-water fly-fishing,
Steve has a deep rooted passion for fly fishing and conservation and developed Guanaja’s Sustainable Development Project with students and volunteers within the communities of Guanaja, a program which has also been running for the past 11 years.
Coming from a fly fishing family, Rebecca’s love for the outdoors has been part of her life since she was little. She spent her childhood exploring the backcountry of Colorado.
Rebecca is the glue that holds many diverse teams together. She is the Reservations Manager, Logistical Coordinator and Bookkeeper for multiple fly fishing companies in multiple countries.
Her customer service and attention to logistical detailing is rare in addition Rebecca has extensive experience with non profits and Fish for Change couldn’t be luckier to have her as part of the team.
Heather graduated from Florida State with a degree in Marketing and Hospitality. Growing up in South Florida, she was immersed in the fly fishing community from a very young age under her Father’s guidance. He helped foster an innate urge to explore the planet and connect with others along the way.
Heather partnered with companies such as Costa, Tropic Star Lodge, Trout Unlimited, CCA, and Captains for Clean Water throughout her time in college. Working alongside such conservation minded organizations grew her desire to dedicate her life to the protection of this planet’s precious resources.
Heather had the chance to lead Fish for Change Student Programs in Guanaja Summer of 2018. The message aligned perfectly with her core values and life’s mission. She is now the Director of Programs, Ambassadors, and Fundraising. Heather is eager to bring Fish for Change to the next level as an international nonprofit.
