What is your role at TLC? My job at TLC is to manage the financial and administrative functions that ensure TLC can continue the important work of safeguarding clean water, protecting natural habitats and connecting people with nature. My duties range from preparing financial statements, IT support, making sure that staff feels valued and appreciated and that we have toilet paper. I’m a jack of all trades and I master them all!
Favorite TLC Preserve: I’m fairly new…so I’ve only had the chance to visit White Pines Nature Preserve where I was able to witness trail (and bridge) building first hand. My goal is visit all the preserves before my one year anniversary.
