I am the newest Coordinator for this group as of February, 2021. I spent the previous 15 years as a Project Manager and Program Director for The Nature Conservancy’s River Conservation Program where I enjoyed surveying, designing, and restoring some of Arkansas’ most beautiful, and often highly impacted, rivers. Previous to TNC I was the Source Water Protection Technician for the Arkansas Rural Water Association and enjoyed helping rural water utilities develop source water protection plans. I enjoy building meaningful partnerships and funding to support critical water quality improvement projects and working as a liaison between groups to arrive at win-win solutions for all involved. I am excited to tap into the passion so many Arkansans have for stewarding the resources within the “Natural State” and collaborating with the members of the Arkansas Forest and Drinking Water Collaborative to improve the state’s forests and drinking water.
