I joined the Friends of MacKenzie shortly after moving to Poynette in the spring of 2006.  My history with the MacKenzie Center and the Friends group over this past decade has been full of varied roles and responsibilities.  As an employee of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation (WWF) I held positions as the MacKenzie Center’s Lead Educator and Director.  After the partnership between WDNR and WWF came to a close, I continued as a staff member under WDNR to co-lead the education program for a few years.  In March of 2016 I returned to the WWF and continue to be an advisor for MacKenzie staff on various projects and needs.  During these years of change and transition, I have come to love and appreciate the relationships and networks that surround the Center and the passion for environmental education.  I am excited to be able to continue to serve the Center in my new role as a Board Member for the Friends of the MacKenzie Center.
