Appointed Supervisor, Whitefish (term expires December 31, 2019)
What is your professional background?
I am a scientist, educator, and writer. I have a Master of Science in Conservation Biology and Bachelor’s in Business Management. I have spent the last 7 years as Science & Education Director for the Whitefish Lake Institute after many years of running a professional consulting firm.
Why do you serve on the board?
I believe I have the duty as a citizen of this watershed to protect and preserve our precious resources. The FCD board provides an opportunity to engage with diverse stakeholders in the activities surrounding soil, water and other natural resource issues, and to join my fellow board members as a voice of reason for those resources.
What projects/programs interest you most?
I am most interested in programs that help educate young citizens of the watershed and projects that engage students of all ages in on-the-ground conservation activities.
