Melissa Mercier holds a B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of Rhode Island and an M.S. in Biological Oceanography with an emphasis in molecular biology from the Graduate School of Oceanography at URI. Her graduate thesis focused on climate change and examined the effect of nutrient limitation on gene regulation in species of phytoplankton as well as its impact on their ability to sequester carbon. After graduating she worked in genetics while completing the HBX Harvard Business School Core Credential of Readiness Program.  She decided to leave the field of genetics to follow her passion for the environment and sustainability.  Melissa spent a year teaching outdoor education in the San Bernardino National Forest in Southern California.  After teaching, she began working as a sustainability consultant for restaurants and then joined Eco-Cycle, a Zero Waste non-profit out of Boulder CO.  She recently joined the team at Waste to Energy Lincoln as the Director of Organics working to complete the anaerobic digester project while continuing to grow organics diversion Lincoln NE.
