As the Fire Prevention and Risk Mitigation Program Manager for Idaho Department of Lands, I work with communities across the state of Idaho in all things wildfire. Specifically, I manage all of the CWPPs for each of the 44 counties in Idaho, helping them update and implement their goals and objectives. I do this by assisting counties and other cooperators write and submit grant applications. I also provide training related to mitigation education, community engagement, fire ecology, prescriptive treatment development, and home assessment.
I sit on the Board of Directors for Idaho Firewise a 5501c3 as the current secretary. The organization is dedicated to the development and distribution of wildfire educational materials for Idaho residents. I have worked in my current position for the the past 4 years with cumulative experience in wildfire approach 20 years.
