Jensen Named Executive Director Of Egan Maritime Institute

Carlisle Barron Jensen

The Board of Trustees of the Egan Maritime Institute announced the appointment of Carlisle Barron Jensen Thursday afternoon as its next Executive Director. The move will be effective May 2, 2022.

Jensen grew up on Nantucket and graduated from Nantucket High School. She continued her education at the University of Vermont, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in Sociology & Community and International Development.

After graduating from college, she became the Program Coordinator for the Dewey House for Community Engagement, where she planned and facilitated over thirty community-centric programs and advised/mentored over 80 college students.

Jensen worked as the Special Event and Film Permit Coordinator for the Town of Nantucket after returning to the island. She held that position for a year before joining the Community Foundation for Nantucket for five years as its Program and Development Officer.

It was during that time that Jensen solidified her commitment to working in the nonprofit sector, where Egan Maritime said she was able to continue enhancing her professional development with courses at the Harvard Business School CORe (Certificate of Readiness) program followed by classes with the Institute of Nonprofit Practice Core Certificate Program for Managers and Executives.

“We are delighted that we have a leader with roots in Nantucket who wants to make a difference, through EMI, in the lives of our island youth, their families and for all who come to the island,” the board said. “(We are) proud to support Jensen and all her staff in continuing EMI’s mission of preserving Nantucket’s maritime history and traditions; it’s going to be an exciting next chapter in EMI’s thirty-three year commitment to the island.”
