Brad coordinates and manages VOF’s stewardship program throughout the Eastern region. Prior to joining VOF, Brad served two separate terms as an AmeriCorps member of Project Conserve, based in western North Carolina. This opportunity led to a position as a conservation coordinator with New River Conservancy, where Brad focused his efforts on land acquisition and protection and various water quality initiatives throughout the three-state New River watershed. Brad currently lives in Richmond with his wife, Shannon, and river-rat pup, Benny. In their spare time, you’ll most likely find them on a hiking trail or floating down the river.
