Chair of the board
On my first visit to Isabela it became clear that IOI is about empowering local families to build safe and sustainable future for themselves and their environment.
My IOI role:
As a member of the Board of Directors I am part of the team that helps support staff and provide leadership on how to achieve our goals and advance our mission
Life prior to IOI:
I have spent over 10 years restoring the Everglades ecosystem working with nonprofit organizations, federal and state agencies on a range of issues from land use to endangered species. My work has ranged from training large exotic animals to educating members of congress – actually those two tasks are not so different.
I am a New York transplant to Miami’s paradise. I hold a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Growth Management and a Masters in Public Administration. More importantly I am an aspiring world traveler, photo enthusiast, a foodie, and a pragmatic idealist.
