Laine joined the Land Trust as Conservation Associate in December of 2014. Growing up hiking and camping in the Pacific Northwest, she developed an inherent appreciation for open spaces and wildlife. Laine received a B.S. in Environmental Science from San Diego State University. She brings project management experience to the Land Trust and has worked alongside both non-profit organizations and government agencies to perform ecology research, wildlife studies, and habitat restoration. She is thrilled to call Jackson Hole home and enjoys spending her spare time mountain biking, hiking, trail running, skiing, and surfing.
