Membership and Grants Coordinator
Eric manages the Alliance’s customer relationship management (CRM) database system, administering the Alliance’s membership program, writing donor acknowledgments, and assisting in a broad range of activities related to the Alliance’s grant-writing efforts.
Eric caught the Ice Age Trail bug while hiking the McKenzie Creek Segment in May of 2005. He was volunteering as a field editor for the Ice Age Trail Companion Guide (now the Ice Age Trail Guidebook) and trekking with his girlfriend (now wife). Over the course of one day of hiking they saw countless wildflowers, a patch of morels, a porcupine, a fisher, and three black bears (or possibly one, hiking in the same direction).
Eric joined the staff in 2006 and coordinates the Alliance’s membership program, member and donor communications, and grant-writing efforts. He is a half-time employee, switching from full-time to be a stay-at-home father with his two girls.
