Living on Whidbey Island for over 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of great organizations including the Whidbey Institute, Whidbey Watershed Stewards, Fort Casey State Park and as Environmental Educator for the City of Oak Harbor.

I believe that by pooling our expertise and resources we’re able to work more effectively to protect Whidbey’s water quality.
