I was born and raised in farming area outside Miles City. It gave me a sense of the good land and also good community working together. I graduated from MSU in Chemical Engineering but grew to want to work protecting our water, air, and land.. I was fortunate to work in City government for City of Helena for five years and 32 years for City of Missoula where the priority was to protect our rivers, the natural places, and our quality of life.
Now that I am retired my priority is to work on mitigating the affects of Climate Change and protecting the wonderful open places: the rivers and lakes, wilderness areas, wild life, and our opportunities to enjoy it . MEIC gives me the opportunity to support these efforts.
