Kimberly earned a B.S. in Geography from Jacksonville State University where she focused her undergraduate studies on Earth Sciences, minoring in Environmental Science. While in college, Kimberly began volunteering at a local land trust in Alabama. After graduation, she became a contractual conservation planner for several land trusts across the southeast, including the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust, Chattahoochee Valley Land Trust, and Lula Lake Land Trust. Kimberly later earned her MPA in Spatial Analysis with a focus on non-profit management from Jacksonville State University where she enjoyed teaching Physical Geography and Geology labs as a graduate teaching assistant. During graduate school, Kimberly worked as a volunteer interpreter for Little River Canyon National Preserve.
Kimberly came to Teton Regional Land Trust in 2016 after serving as the Stewardship and Monitoring Manager and later the Stewardship and GIS Specialist for the Georgia-Alabama Land Trust. In her current role, Kimberly oversees the conservation easement monitoring program and takes a lead role in writing baseline documentation reports for new conservation easement properties. Kimberly also serves as the Land Trust GIS specialist, completing mapping projects and leading the modeling effort for our conservation planning. Kimberly is grateful to work at the Teton Regional Land Trust because of how rewarding it is to see how our strategically focused work connects landscapes for wildlife while preserving working farmlands and ranches. One of her favorite things about the work is getting to meet landowners and learning the stories of their land and why they decided to protect it. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her animals and husband enjoying all that the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem has to offer.
