Bio

I grew up in Southern Illinois and studied Forest Management at SIU-Carbondale. In my free time, I enjoy camping, canoeing, ice fishing, and spending time with family. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors and growing up I was always outside. I learned early on that I had an appreciation for our natural resources. Helping landowners learn about their property and achieving their forest objectives is the most rewarding part of being a forester. 

What I like about Chippewa County: The people and the diverse landscapes are wonderful. It supports agriculture, hardwood forests, abundant wildlife, and recreational opportunities for all ages.

Bio

I grew up outside of Wisconsin Rapids, WI and studied Forest Management at UW-Madison. I worked in several states and glad to have landed back in Wisconsin. In my free time, I enjoy hunting deer and grouse, fishing, camping, kayaking, and biking. I spent a lot of time outdoors growing up and grateful to continue that in my professional life. I enjoy the opportunities to connect landowners to the resources they need to accomplish their forestry goals.

What I like about Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties: I enjoy the mix of landscapes from the rivers to the hills and the agricultural land in between. Each county has something for everyone with our vast variety of outdoor activities and recreation.
