I announced two months ago that I would be stepping down as Executive Director of the Allegheny-Blue Ridge Alliance in June.  Today is my last day.

I’ve had the privilege of helping co-found ABRA in 2014 and serving as its first Chair until assuming the role as staff head.  It has been an exhilarating nearly-eight years, during which I have met and worked with hundreds of wonderful people.  Those relationships have been the greatest reward to me personally.

The ABRA Board of Directors has not yet made a decision on new staff leadership. For the time being, any general communications or questions to ABRA should be directed to Allen Johnson, Chair of the ABRA Board of Directors, at .  Communications about ABRA’s Conservation Hub program should be directed to Rick Webb at .

I hope to be able to stay in touch with many of you in the future.  My contact information remains and 540-468-2769.

All the best to everyone.
