I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with an emphasis in wildlife management. I worked as a land manager for the US Fish and Wildlife Service for 11 years and gained extensive knowledge and experience conducting prescribed burns, fighting wildland fires and working risk management in 22 states, including the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. I am currently the Vice President of the Crane Trust and oversee the daily operations of our complex. At the Crane Trust, our mission is to protect and maintain the physical, hydrological and biological integrity of the Platte River. I have always been a strong proponent for partnerships to effectively collaborate the different creativeness, knowledge, skills and abilities of all people, groups and organizations to maintain, protect and advocate for our resources. I believe the Crane Trust’s location allows a great opportunity to promote Nebraska’s resources, while allowing an opportunity to hold events and showcase partnership work being done throughout the state. Overall, as a steward of the land, I enjoy restoring and preserving a functioning prairie landscape so that my four children, and others can experience the pure beauty and importance of Mother Nature’s role in our lives. I am very impressed with the Master Naturalist program and foresee a very bright future for the program. I look forward to the opportunity of working with everyone involved.
