I’m currently the Environmental Director and have been working on projects, continuing grant writing, and also looking to continue funding for our Vocational Rehabilitation Program. I’ve worked with PPN for 6 years now, This is my first full year as the Environmental Director so I’ve been working to familiarize myself with the department.

Before this I was the full-time grant writer. I still write grants, and some of my biggest successes include receiving the 2012 DOL YouthBuild Grant and amending our 2007 ICDBG grant to help build a new Head Start school. I’ve recently started diving deeper into restoration of the PPN Wetlands as part of the EPA Wetlands grant. As well as, working on creating a website for our department to highlight activities and create an exchange of info with area agencies, tribes and the world.
