I am currently the Senior Director of Philanthropy, Major Gifts for The Wilderness Society. My 24 year conservation career includes 19 years with The Nature Conservancy developing funding for and implementing conservation strategies focused on the protection of continental scale ecological systems plus 5 years with The Wilderness Society leading a national team of major gift officers whose objective is to develop impactful philanthropic support to protect America's wild public lands.
I have a BBA with a major in Marketing from the University of Mississippi and a MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana.
When not working, I spend my time with wife Dana, my daughters Grace, Clair, Sophie, and my English Pointer, Dexter. Together we love to explore the mountains, rivers, grasslands, and soccer fields of Montana.
