Jen Kreiner joins the FSPW Staff in Sanders County

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is excited to announce a new staff member who is occupying an entirely new position, Sanders County Outreach Coordinator. Jen Kreiner begins work on March 4 as a permanent part-time employee based in Thompson Falls. Jen brings enthusiasm for outreach and wild country to the job, a perfect combination for “the cause” in Sanders County. She will be identifying outreach opportunities as well as planning and overseeing events.
Jen relocated to Montana in 1999 after a summer working in Yellowstone National Park, realizing that she had to be in the mountains! She finished school at the University of Montana with a bachelor degree in Fine Arts in 2001. A majority of her professional experience is with non-profit management, marketing and communications.
She resides in Thompson Falls with her family and feels very lucky to explore her backyard — northwest Montana. She is an avid hiker, backpacker and x-country skier. With all of the demands of daily life, it is comforting to know that balance is always found at the top of the mountain.
