Kelsey is the new Civic Engagement Manager for Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance. Born and raised on a farm in San Antonio, Texas, Kelsey developed a love for the outdoors from an early age. She studied Wildlife and Fisheries Science with a concentration in Wildlife Conservation for Texas A&M University where she also held the education chair for the Texas Chapter of the Wildlife Society and did undergrad research for the Mammalogy department. Kelsey then started her career in Conservation as a Field Technician for Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge where she studied survival rate for Cinnamon Teal Ducks. She then transitioned to the N.P.S as a Park Ranger in interpretation, providing programs and education for visitors for six seasons at Rocky Mountain National Park, Glacier National Park and Grand Teton National Park.

Kelsey is excited to take her knowledge of education, conservation and building connections to her new role as the Civic Engagement Manager. In her free time, you can find Kelsey trail running up mountains with her dog Milo, floating the Teton river, gardening and skiing!
