Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.I recently completed 6.5 years of managing a Wildland Seed Services Program for a conservation organization. The program provided high-quality genetically appropriate seed for land managing agencies, especially relating to large-scale mitigation and revegetation work. The program also provided support where agencies did not have the staff capacity or technical expertise to achieve optimal results and built and coordinated regional knowledge related to best practices. As the program manager, I coordinated with amplification farms to produce local ecotypes.
I have dedicated my career to land management and natural resource conservation for over twenty years. In roles such as program manager, botanist, seed ecologist, native plant nursery manager, grower, restoration technician, and resource advisor, I have worked for a wide range of organizations, including non-profits, private forestry operations, universities, and the federal government.
I have years of experience as a grower and nursery manager. My recent role was a branch of a more extensive native plant nursery operation. In addition, I have worked for MSU Ag at the Creston farm in Kalispell, Montana, as a research technician
