Mayflower Wind, the developer of an offshore wind project to be located over 30 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard and 20 miles south of Nantucket, has named Mashpee native Kelsey Perry as its community liaison officer.
Ms. Perry was born and raised in Mashpee. She graduated from Mashpee High School. The roots that tie her to the Cape are intergenerational, as both of her parents grew up there as well.
“My mother grew up in Bourne and is a special needs educator for Plymouth Public Schools, and my father is a Falmouth High School graduate and owns his own plumbing business,” Ms. Perry said. “Growing up on Cape Cod allowed me to connect to our oceans and wildlife from a very young age.”
Ms. Perry brings with her several years of experience in the environmental sector and a deep affection for Cape Cod and its citizens. She holds a bachelor of arts degree in chemistry with a minor in business management from Clark University in Worcester and a master’s of science degree in sustainability science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Ms. Perry’s work experience includes the Cape and Islands Self-Reliance, where she worked on various projects including the Town of Falmouth’s Climate Protection Action Plan, the Urban Agriculture and Innovation Production grant with the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s EnergyStar portfolio.
