Board of Directors
Having spent thousands of hours studying belted kingfisher breeding biology along the Connecticut River while conducting his doctoral research at UMASS-Amherst, Dan feels a special affinity for riverine habitats and was glad to be invited to join the BkC board in 2013.
Dan has lived in Argyle for the past 10 years and works as the director of environmental affairs for a utility scale wind energy developer.
He looks forward to using his back ground in ecology and natural history to help promote the BkC's mission related to conservation and education.
A long time BkC member and supporter, Jim joined the board in 2010 to help facilitate events and better focus on local issues including initiating "The Battenkill Runs Through It" Festival.
An AIA registered architect and LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) accredited professional, his contributions to local planning, preservation and environmental issues are numerous.
As an avid trout fisherman, love of the BattenKill is in his genes and he strives to promote the river and the importance of cool, clear water.
Lorraine's involvement began with producing the first Battenkill Runs Through It Festival in 2011 and began contributing her independent consulting firm's event planning and fundraising services to "move BkC's mission forward". In the fall of 2015, she became the organization's first Executive Director.
Prior to her work in the not for profit sector, she worked as a corporate investment banker focusing on international media & entertainment companies. She holds an MBA from IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain and a BA in International Affairs from the Elliot School at George Washington University in Washington, DC.
Lorraine's love of the Battenkill entails any and all activities related to the river.
