Rachel joins the Center with a background in natural resource conflict resolution and collaborative, landscape-level conservation. Rachel is excited to continue working on ecological connectivity and wildlife crossings and corridors.
Before the Center, Rachel worked for a public policy consulting firm, providing facilitation and mediation services for local, state, tribal, and federal partners seeking to resolve land use and environmental challenges across the Pacific Northwest. She spent several years at National Parks Conservation Association as the Yellowstone Wildlife Program Coordinator, where she led a multi-stakeholder habitat connectivity program, as well as campaigns addressing forest planning, species conservation, and wildlife and transportation across the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
In her spare time, she can be found running, hiking, or otherwise enjoying the mountains surrounding Bozeman with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.
