Drawn to the woods since she started to walk, Rebecca, a NH native, has long earned her nickname Nemophilist, haunter of the woods. With a degree in environmental resource management, she is a self-proclaimed “anti-peak bagger.” She prefers any amount of forested acreage to a view when looking for adventure. With over 15 years in non-profit administration, she has also worked as an environmental educator, in real estate, as a backpacking instructor, owned three of her own businesses and managed her own woodlot. She loves talking to private land owners and the Forest Society’s abutters about the value of conservation land. In her spare time she enjoys rural life with her family, cooking, gardening, exercising and wandering the NH woods.
Rebecca’s responsibilities at the Forest Society include, conservation and land use policy, editor of the Forest Advocate, reservation and Current Use administration, visitor services, and property taxes.
