Favorite Place in the Northwest:Colville National Forest
Favorite Northwest Animal:
Tiana leads our Forest Field Program work on the Colville National Forest, including representing us in the Northeast Washington Forest Coalition and related forest collaboration. She also works on efforts to connect the Cascades to the Rockies through our Colville Wild Campaign for permenent public land protections.
Tiana received her B.S. in Biology from Western Washington University and an M.S. in Natural Resource Sciences at Washington State University. Most recently, Tiana served as a forester/botanist/GIS specialist with an environmental consulting firm near Spokane. She joined the non-profit sector when it became apparent the for-profit model didn’t align with her values. In her work, Tiana strives to use science as the driving force behind her decisions and opinions, while seeking to acknowledge and understand the opinions of others. Tiana lives in northeast Washington with her family, including two dogs, and enjoys spending time in the woods, on the water, and in the garden.
