I work for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry as a Wildland Urban Interface program coordinator. I also act as the state’s liaison to the national Firewise USA recognition program. My primary work areas include Community Wildfire Protection Plans, Firewise USA, and Wildfire Risk Reduction projects. I’m also a member of the National Wildfire Coordinating Group WUI Mitigation Committee, representing the Northeast Area states.
