“Lincoln is my hometown, and it is a great honor to serve as the Director of Parks and Recreation. I care deeply about advancing excellence and equality in parks, recreation, and environmental conservation. By engaging with passionate volunteers and diverse partner organizations, we can improve the quality of life for all people."

We want to acknowledge that our community rests on the traditional lands of the Ponca, Omaha, Winnebago, Dakota and Oto Peoples past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. This calls us to commit to work in partnership with our Indigenous Peoples, continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we now inhabit as well.
