I am honored to join the Everglades Foundation as its new chief executive officer. The mission is simple: Save the Everglades. It is the source of water for more than 7 million Floridians and a driver of our economy. What we do now will determine whether our generation leaves future generations with a vibrant, healthy River of Grass.
Throughout my time in government, I thoroughly enjoyed working on Everglades issues at the federal and state level. I am eager to re-engage on the many issues facing the Everglades. The Everglades Foundation is the premier voice when it comes to Everglades restoration. I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, dedicated staff, supporters and diverse stakeholders who all strive everyday to restore the Everglades.
