Water Quality Program Manager
(608) 448-6432 ext. 209
Devon (she/her/hers) coordinates the planning and implementation of agroforestry programs and educational tools for improving water quality via agroforestry and perennial cropping. Born and raised in Wisconsin the daughter of an agronomist, she spent her summers in the garden and the fall foraging for wild foods with her family. Prior to joining the Institute, Devon directed climate change research for the Bad River Tribe and studied forest health in eight states with the National Park Service. She is interested in the nexus between natural and cultural resources – and agroforestry, with its stewardship, reciprocity, and community, is a natural next step. In her spare time, Devon enjoys making music, exploring natural communities, and baking molasses cookies with her partner Andrés.
