I am excited to be joining the Driftless Area Land Conservancy as the second student board member. I am a Junior Reclamation and Environmental Conservation student at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. At Platteville I have had leadership roles in the Reclamation club, the Platteville Student Optimist Club, UW Platteville Dance Marathon, and the Platteville Track and Field Team. I grew up in Southwest Wisconsin in Vernon County, where I enjoyed fishing, hunting, swimming, and exploring the outdoors. I also have a passion for hiking and exploring National and state parks. I would like to share and preserve the beauty of the Driftless Area so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
