Past Jobs & Experience

Natasha comes to Driftless Area Land Conservancy with more than 20 years of business administration where customer service was a key role.  Learning all aspects of the not-for-profit and for-profit models broadened her administrative experience.  Initially, a part of her past professional experience involved hands-on husbandry of domestic and wild animals.  This gave her the opportunity to be immersed in natural resources on a professional and personal level.  Influential people in her life from a young age, created a love for nature, awareness of conservation and respect for the outdoors. 

 

Favorite thing about the Driftless Area

"Diverse landscape, unique topography and the sustainable connection between land and farmer.  In addition, being able to share this beautiful part of Wisconsin with family and friends."
