Ann specializes in providing education about our nation's wildfire response structure and natural resource management policies. She can assist you by providing guidance throughout the challenging government processes to meet the increasing need for wildfire prevention, detection, disaster response, and post-fire recovery for our most vulnerable communities. Her expertise is often utilized by federal and state agencies, Non-Government Organizations and 'for public benefit' corporations that offer services and cutting edge technologies.
Ann brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to every fire, forestry, and aviation project she takes on providing leadership and convening interested stakeholders to resolve conflict by identifying shared solutions. She has worked with many levels of government and non-profit organizations to develop and implement reformed policies and improved procedures.
