Executive Director, Foundation for Sustainable Forests 

Women play a huge role in the future of our forests as landowners, heirs to forested land, and caretakers of their woodlands. Yet, there is a disconnect between the proportion of forested lands owned by women and their direct management experience and confidence in their ability to make stewardship decisions. At the Foundation for Sustainable Forests, we aim to empower all forest landowners and stewards with the knowledge and resources to care for the land now and for the future. As a woman, I am especially committed to engaging and empowering women woodland owners in northwestern Pennsylvania and beyond.
