Pierce Conservation District

Jeanette’s first experience with conservation districts is when she was a community volunteer starting in 1996, working with the Pierce Conservation District and her neighbors to take care of the rural creek she grew up on. In 2009 Jeanette was elected to Pierce’s Board of Supervisors and in 2010 she was elected by her fellow board members to be Chair. Jeanette continues to serve as Chair of Pierce CD’s Board. She was elected to the WACD board first as Area Director for the Northwest Area and then soon after the Vice President of the Association in 2016. She completed two years as Vice President before being elected President in 2018.  She has since been re-elected twice to continue as President.  When she’s not volunteering to support the work of conservation districts she splits her time between her work as the Executive Director of the Nisqually Land Trust, and as a mom of a 17 year old son and a 11 year old daughter. Jeanette has degrees in Earth Science, Environmental Studies, and Restoration Ecology.
