About the Speaker:

James Fitzgerald is the Boating Safety Officer for the University of California, Davis, and Training Director for the Scientific Boating Safety Association. James began his career serving the U.S. Coast Guard for 13 years as a boat operator and teaching service members in different aspects of the USCG’s missions.
