Past Jobs & Experience

Theresa has worked with Driftless Area Land Trust since 2015 as the easement monitoring coordinator. Before landing in the Driftless area, Theresa was the Conservation Specialist with the River Revitalization Foundation in Milwaukee, WI and interned with Gathering Waters Conservancy while pursuing her graduate degree. Although she is a Wisconsin native, she spent the first part of her conservation career in the Rockies and Sierra Nevada mountains as a biological science technician with the National Park Service and National Forest Service. After meeting her now husband (and a desire for a more rooted homestead) she found herself happily back in the midwest.
