Eve Frankel is the State Director of The Nature Conservancy in Vermont. She first joined TNC in 2014 and has held positions as both Deputy Director and Director of Strategic Communications.
Eve has over twenty years of leadership experience in the renewable energy and non-profit arenas. As an immigrant to the U.S. in the 1980s, Eve grew up in urban centers on both sides of the Atlantic with little exposure to the outdoors until her 20s. It was then that she began a deep relationship with nature, growing her love and literacy for natural communities. Eve has leveraged this outsider’s perspective in various leadership roles to help build bridges between content and audiences, projects and funders, and teams and goals to strategically advance biodiversity protection and climate action.
A nearly thirty-year Vermont resident, Eve calls the Mad River Valley home. From this narrow river valley nestled between the Green Mountain and the Northfield Mountain ranges, she has witnessed the nature wins, such as nesting migratory birds and floodplain restoration, and the nature losses, such as forest fragmentation and increased flood events due to climate change. She is passionate about working with communities to find solutions to our biodiversity and climate change crises to co-create a world where both people and nature thrive.
