Ann specializes in providing education about our nation's wildfire response structure and natural resource management policies.  She assists several clients and non-profit organizations to respond to the increasing need for wildfire prevention, detection, and response. Her expertise is often utilized by companies that offer cutting edge technology for aerial fire detection, including aircraft for fire suppression, and post-fire recovery/restoration of damaged landscapes/communities.  

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. 

Ann has co-authored many national policies and guidance documents including the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy and the Community Guide to Preparing And Implementing A Community Wildfire Protection Plan. 

Ann is available for public speaking to educate and energize your group for fire prevention and mitigation strategies.
