Amanda Kueper
Applied Science Coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry.

"I see the role of woman in forest stewardship continuing to grow in the future. When I first started working for DNR Forestry five years ago, there were not many woman in leadership roles in the division. I am seeing that begin to change in the last few years, and am seeing more women foresters as well. I have worked in forest landowner outreach, and it is becoming more common to see women landowners who are interested in managing their woodlands. Women have an important role to play in forestry and it is exciting to see that growth."
