About Courtney

I am a research associate serving as the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) project coordinator. I focus on disseminating ASCC project findings and translating them into outreach and training opportunities with land managers and scientists working to manage forests for climate change adaptation. I collaborate with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) on climate science communication and adaptation initiatives, and work to connect partners to NIACS programs, resources, and training opportunities. Prior to working for the Forest and Rangeland Stewardship Department, I was the Wildfire Mitigation Education Coordinator for the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) where I developed and implemented outreach, education, and public awareness campaigns related to forest health, fire adapted communities, and wildfire mitigation for a diverse range of audiences.
