EJ Porth



Communications and Outreach Director

“I am lucky beyond measure to live in such a special place. I wake up every day with a sense of purpose and satisfaction knowing that the work I do helps protect the things I treasure most about living here.”

EJ joined GVLT as the Communications and Outreach Manager in the spring of 2014. She spent her previous 5 years in Bozeman as the Development Coordinator for HAVEN and Marketing Director at Buffalo Restoration. EJ also works part time with local high school students through the Bozeman Youth Initiative. She moved to Montana from Chicago where she attended Northwestern University and received a B.A. in Sociology. In Chicago she held internships with nonprofits in public relations, volunteer management, and event planning. In her spare time EJ stays busy volunteering with various community groups such as Rotaract, Eagle Mount, Reach Inc., and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. EJ and her faithful pup, Zima, are deeply appreciative of the trails in town. She and her furry sidekick like to cross country ski, hike, and explore the beautiful Gallatin Valley.
