Malloree Weinheimer works in sustainable forestry and rural community development. She was raised at the foot of the Wasatch mountains in Utah, which gave her an early love of the natural world. This love led her to the University of Washington, where she graduated with a BS in Forestry. Since then she has spent nine years working in the public sector in land management and conservation in various places around the country and returned to Port Townsend in 2014. Seeing a wide gap in services and the need for more sustainable jobs in the region, she took the leap to start her own business to offer forestry support to the local community on the Olympic Peninsula. She also serves on the Jefferson County Parks & Recreation board and on regional land management and economic development working groups as a volunteer. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the natural world with her husband, Willie, biking, baking cookies, and gardening.
