Debbie began her Forest Service career in 1990 on the Tonto National Forest as a wildlife biologist and then later in a more interdisciplinary role as a member of a forest-wide NEPA team. In 2000, Debbie took a position with Grand Canyon National Park as a NEPA specialist and worked on a number of projects and large planning efforts, including conducting Section 106, tribal, and Section 7 consultations. Project experience includes vegetation management and timber harvest, prescribed fire, livestock grazing management, wildlife habitat improvement, transportation systems, backcountry management, road and building construction, and fire management planning.
Debbie has been a facilitator of Franklin Covey’s “First Things First – From Time Management to Life Leadership” course, served as a contracting officer’s representative for NEPA analyses, used the “Choosing by Advantages” decision-making process, and has been a course instructor for NPS Planning.
So far with TEAMS, Debbie has worked on projects in Forest Service Regions 3 and 5. Debbie has worked for TEAMS since September 2008.
