Gro is a 22 year homeowner in Leavenworth who taught at Cascade High School and IRMS as well as Wenatchee Valley College until my retirement.  I have been on the boards of Audubon, MEND and Friends of Leavenworth as well as my current 7th year at the Wenatchee River Institute.  I volunteer with Empty Bowls, Free Clinic and Das Thrift Haus as well as the Rivers Advisory Council.  I have a background in science education and specifically natural resources and environmental issues.  I believe in working for a sustainable future where we all can equitably share our amazing resources and preserve them for generations to come.
