Georgie Heaverley is a lifelong Alaskan and commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay and Cook Inlet. She has previously worked as a community organizer for Cook Inletkeeper where she focused on salmon habitat protection issues and commercial fishing community engagement.

She has served on the NPFMC Cook Inlet Salmon FMP Committee and is currently a member of the Anchorage Fish and Game Advisory Committee, where she serves as Chair of the Fish Subcommittee.
