Hometown: Bismark, ND
Occupation: Southwest Manager, Montana Land Reliance
What have you learned from being a supervisor? I have learned about various water quality issues around the Madison Valley as well as the breadth and scope of work that the MCD manages. I've learned about the need for folks to think holistically about their properties and that we have excellent resources, both in staff and documents for gaining more knowledge on management best practices.
What work you do as a supervisor is the most meaningful? I am passionate about innovative ways to manage our natural resources and the MCD does an excellent job with their projects and assisting landowners with best management practices. I also love the work the CD is doing with local kids through the Good Thymes Camp. I'm new so I'm just starting to get involved with projects and am very excited about the watershed planning that is taking place.
Which MCD projects and programs are you most involved in? I am interested in the watershed planning work, Madison Stream team and outreach opportunities of the MCD. I have a background in Environmental Sciences and can assist or provide expertise for work associated with wetlands, invasive weeds and native plants.
