Cindy’s 27-year natural resource management career consisted of diverse work experiences, including Forestry Technician (fire management) and Forest Fuels Management Specialist for the U. S. Forest Service; Wildlife Biological Technician and Initial Attach Fire Dispatcher for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Fish and Wildlife Biologist for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  During her tenure with the Service, Cindy reviewed and completed Endangered Species Act consultations on many projects occurring on federally-managed public lands in Coos, Curry, Douglas, Jackson and Josephine Counties in southwest Oregon.

Cindy’s involvement with the Southern Oregon Forest Restoration Collaborative (Collaborative) began in 2008.  Since then, she has supported several of the Collaborative’s efforts, most recently providing technical assistance throughout the development of the Collaborative’s Rogue Basin Cohesive Forest Restoration Strategy.  Cindy looks forward to her continued advocacy for science-based, collaboratively driven forest management practices in the Rogue River Basin of southwest Oregon in her position on the Board of Directors for the Collaborative.
