Noreen is a born-and-bred Missoulian. She first embarked on her career in development with the Five Valleys Land Trust, raising funds, organizing volunteers, and engaging the community to purchase the iconic Mount Jumbo. After going back to school for her MS in Environmental Studies at the University of Montana, and spending time raising her children and creating her own consulting business, she returned to the nonprofit world. Noreen is most inspired by EPI's mission and passionate staff, as well as the opportunity to continue establishing connections with people and communities to make an impact. Spending time outdoors, traveling, volunteering, and reading historical fiction are some of her favorite past times. She is grateful to be raising her daughters in such an amazing community where they can be involved in theater and Irish dancing.
