Supervisor of Membership
The PATC has provided many opportunities for me over the years. I have been a member of the PATC since 1993; first joining the Charlottesville Chapter to learn local trails worth exploring. Since then, I've become a hike leader for the Charlottesville Chapter for the past nine years, assisted with PATC Trail Map revisions since 2012, GPS Rangers since 2013, trail maintainer since 2013, Charlottesville Chapter President since 2018, and Hikes Committee member since 2019. I currently maintain several trails in the GWNF North River District. I have hiked all trails maintained by the PATC in that district, as well as all Shenandoah and AT miles maintained by the PATC.
If elected, I would work with the present Supervisor of Membership, Michael Brown, to transition his duties and further his focus on increasing the number and diversity of PATC membership. Meeting the needs of those members who live a long way from Vienna would be a personal priority, given my Charlottesville location.
