Tricia has extensive experience in the Chattanooga area conservation community. A longtime resident of the region, Tricia has extensive knowledge of land trusts, conservation easements, and nonprofit management. Before joining the Friends of Moccasin Bend as joint executive director of both the Friends of Moccasin Bend and the Friends of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Tricia was Director of the Lula Lake Land Trust. Tricia oversaw 3+ years of fundraising efforts for the trust. Before Lula Lake, Tricia was the Southeast Region Project Manager for the Land Trust for Tennessee where she was responsible for saving countless acres of farmland with conservation easements. Besides nonprofit work, Tricia has taught many UTC students about sustainable land use and agriculture through an adjunct faculty position at UTC. The Friends are excited for Tricia to join us as we embark on a new chapter of the organization.
