Development Supervisor

Pronouns: She/Her

What’s your role/what do you do @ THC? I do a lot of behind the scenes work involving data entry, grant research and writing, donor appeal and stewardship coordination as well as general program support.

Favorite place to adventure i.e. favorite fishing hole, hike, lake, etc.? My favorite places to venture are hot springs, mountains and lakes in and around the Sawtooth Mountains. I look forward to doing some weekend backpacking trips with my partner and dogs this summer in the Pioneer mountains and near Pettit Lake.

What do you love most about our community? As a newer community member, I have met some wonderful people who have shown me the kind, caring and generous way of people here in the Wood River Valley. I am grateful for meeting folks like this here as it made me feel welcome when I didn’t know anyone. I am so grateful to be at a community centered organization where everyone is welcome and celebrated.

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? I have long debated this question and have two answers. As a vegetable, I would be fennel because it is delicious raw or cooked and it is often overlooked when it is a wonderful addition to many kinds of cuisine. I would also be garlic, because it is essential to flavoring food and has significant medicinal benefits to your health. I also love growing garlic as it overwinters in my garden beds and it is a sure sign that spring is on the way once the greens pop out of the soil.
