EEANM is pleased to announce our new Executive Director, Eileen Everett, who will begin working with us on January 11, 2016.
Eileen has a strong background in environmental education, having worked as a wildlife biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as an environmental educator for Audubon New Mexico and the Santa Fe Watershed Association, running her consulting firm “Down to Earth Education,” and as a climate change educator for the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
Eileen is an enthusiastic and supportive member of EEANM and has served on our Board of Directors in the past. She has strong nonprofit experience, having worked as an Educator, Education Director, and even Interim Executive Director.
She is looking forward to taking charge in January and leading EEANM through its next phase of growth as we establish an office at Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge and continue to support environmental education in New Mexico. Eileen is also a candidate for the first NM EE Certification Program, expecting to be certified by fall of 2016.
She will be a strong leader for EEANM and we look forward to what comes next!
