I’m the Affiliate Director for Puget Sound Conservation at The Nature Conservancy’s Washington Chapter. I exploit my 14 years’ experiencewith the Nature Conservancy and dealing with native communities and sudden companions throughout Puget Sound to develop our conservation affect andsupport our unimaginable Cities and Floodplains centered Puget Sound employees. By way of my work, I search to construct sensible relationships based mostly on frequent floor that may get issues completed collectively. I’m impressed and humbled by the eagerness of our groups and partnerships. That is heart-work for me, and I couldn’t be extra thrilled to have interaction deeply on daily basis. As a Mount Vernon-based employees particular person, I work together each day with the individuals in our North Sound communities. Listening fastidiously to know their views helps outline our conservation priorities and alternatives.
