Shauna Hanisch-Kirkbride is Managing Director of the Lower Columbia Fish Enhancement Group in Vancouver, Washington. LCFEG is one of Washington’s 14 regional fisheries enhancement groups that work to create partnerships with landowners, tribes, local businesses, volunteers, agencies, and NGOs to lead their communities in successful habitat restoration, education, and monitoring projects. Shauna studied at the University of Montana (B.S.) and Boise State University (MPA) and holds a Ph.D. in fisheries and wildlife from Michigan State University. Her professional experience includes teaching environmental science and ecology at a college in Michigan and several years working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service migratory bird program where she focused on double-crested cormorant management. With experience in ecology, policy, and human dimensions, she brings a well-rounded, socioecological perspective to all of the issues she works on. After several years in the temperate deciduous forests of the eastern U.S., she is happy to be back in her home state of Washington working to help improve salmonid habitat.
