Fort Myers, FL –

The Coastal Zone Foundation (CZF) is pleased to announce that Jeremiah Stockwell has earned the designation of Certified Coastal Practitioner™ (CCP) professional credential.

Earning the CCP designation distinguishes Mr. Stockwell as having a broad knowledge base and understanding of the interrelationships that exist among different coastal professions.

Mr. Stockwell has more than 20 years of experience of management in business, construction, environmental remediation on projects across multiple U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, and commercial and private installations.

“Over the past few years, I have taken a serious interest into coastal resiliency, shoreline stabilization, marine life habitat, and coral restoration,” said Stockwell. “The courses were very helpful and kept my attention without getting into the finite detail of each topic. I believe this certification will be helpful in my pursuit to be a positive and substantial impact within the industry.”
