My Chief Financial Officer role at Ecotrust encompasses a broad range of activities that have financial impacts on the organization. Some are relatively mundane, while others can influence long-term strategic outcomes. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to join the Ecotrust team. Both the role and the organization completely resonate with me professionally and personally as a law & finance professional with 40 years of socioeconomic development experience and as a long-time resident of a rural, timber-economy community with a professional wildland fire fighter son and social justice advocate daughter. This temporary assignment will allow me to manifest my core values daily for an organization that demonstrates solution pathways, both practical and profound, in everything it does.
