Vice Chair, James Ellis
James was raised in Virginia beach and fell in love with the ocean at a young age. He earned a B.A. from Bridgewater College in 2011, and joined the local chapter soon after. Since then, he has served on the Executive Committee as an at large member, beach cleanup coordinator, and is now the Membership Coordinator. He loves the ocean, friends, environmental justice, good times, and good brew.
Treasurer, Morgan Wilds
As long as she can remember, Morgan Wilds has loved being outdoors and by any body of water. Born in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and raised in the Mountains of East Tennessee, she has always had a passion for keeping her backyards beautiful. She recently moved to Richmond, Virginia to finish pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies which she hopes to continue furthering her education. Her first year of college was spent at the University of Hawaii where she studied more waves than textbooks, but left with a much greater appreciation of the ocean and the determination to do all she can to protect them. She’s stoked to be a part of the Richmond Committee for Surfrider Foundation VB. In her free time you can catch her making day trips to VA Beach, the James River or hanging out with her pup, Rudy.”
