Whitney joined EMSWCD in April 2017 with 13 years of experience in land management, planning, and ecological restoration. She works with private landowners, schools, businesses, and other organizations to develop unique conservation solutions for their properties. Whether it’s through capturing stormwater, reducing erosion, planting native plants, or creating pollinator habitat, she believes conservation begins at home and that everyone can be part of the solution.
Whitney has a B.A. in Anthropology/Sociology and an M.S. in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology. Prior to joining EMSWCD she worked for the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources, and the U.S. Forest Service on the Monongahela National Forest. She is an avid hiker and backpacker, and is thrilled to call the Pacific Northwest home.
