Natural Resource Specialist

Aimee has been a lifelong resident of Western Washington and is in awe, daily, of its beauty. The impulse to care for this land resides fully in her heart and mind. Conservation and collaboration are forefront in what she strives for in her personal, volunteer, and professional realms. In many facets of her life, she works to weave together people, animals, systems, resources, and ideas to encourage positive outcomes. Aimee has spent decades coordinating resources, working on farms, managing properties, and volunteering in stewardship capacities, and is thrilled to be able to blend her past work and experiences together with loads of new learning, and growth. She loves to draw from a diverse set of tools and to hone and fit those to a broadening scope of work, gaining new tools along the way to cultivate best management practices in conservation, farming and living in this treasured place.
