National Park Planner

I formed strong relationships at Acadia National Park, where I was Chief of Planning & Land Resources. Other NPS planning positions allowed me to become involved in national parks throughout the Northeast (e.g. Saint Croix Island International Historic Site and Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Historical Park). Working with residents of the St. John Valley was particularly rewarding—a website has been created by the Acadian Archives from a report to Congress I authored, with others, about Maine Acadian Culture. At Boston Harbor Islands I guided creation of the park’s first management, interpretive, and strategic plans.

Nation-wide experiences included serving on the NPS Partnership Council, teaching in NPS Fundamentals courses, and helping create the NPS Urban Agenda.
