Biography

Nancy formerly oversaw land management activities and legal compliance monitoring work in Maine. This included ecological and recreational management on our fee lands and ensuring all monitoring is completed and issues addressed for our conservation easements and restricted transfers and tradelands. In addition, she oversaw protection projects that were additions to preserves and coordinates our preserve transfer work.

She implemented restoration projects including the application of fire to manage sandplain grasslands and pine barrens; invasive species management; and restoration of wetlands impacted by former land use practices.

Her past professional work includes coordinating field research on soil invertebrates for Michigan State University and conducting field research and ecological monitoring for Massachusetts Audubon Society.

She now aids the land management team as an expert consultant and volunteer.

Nancy has a bachelor of science in wildlife management and a master of science in biology with an emphasis in wildlife biology, both from Eastern Kentucky University.
