Board Chair

“I believe that it's a remarkable privilege to live in the Gallatin Valley. GVLT's conservation and trails development mission is foundational to preserving and enhancing so many of the qualities - the natural beauty, the ranching and farming heritage, the largely outdoor-activities-driven sense of community - that make it such a privilege.”
