COLT’s weekly land trust news
June 13th, 2016
Happy Monday everyone,
As some of you know, with Kelley’s maternity leave this summer, COLT has hired a part-time communications assistant to help with a number of important tasks over the next three months. We are pleased to welcome and introduce you to Stephanie Manzo! Here’s a short bio:
Stephanie is a native Oregonian, born and raised a fourth-generation resident of Salem and the Willamette Valley. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Horticulture Science and business administration from Oregon State University, but life has led her down many varied paths ever since! Having worked in both nonprofit and private sectors, Stephanie has facilitated communications strategies in renewable energy and green building/sustainability. More recently, she has delved into documentary film production to strengthen her multi-media communications acumen. She is driven to protect Oregon’s natural legacy and this beautiful state that has served as her first and treasured home.
Stephanie brings years of experience in communications and outreach, and currently splits her time between COLT and her role helping to organize the Pickathon music festival in early August. We are very happy to have her as part of our team, and look forward to introducing her to our members.
Stephanie will be sending this Monday e-news this summer, so look for her name in your inbox next week!
All the very best for a pleasant week for all,
Stephanie and a friend, hiking near Leavenworth, WA
