Board of Directors
Bill Pfeiffer grew up fishing Pennsylvania’s spring creeks and mountain streams before moving to Montana to find meaning in his life. Over 11 years later, that meaning is still primarily trout fishing every chance he gets. Bill is a fly-fishing guide, an amateur photographer and aquatic entymologist, a writer, a musician, and a graduate of the University of Montana School of Law, where he specialized in environmental law and water law and policy. He also enjoys skiing when the river is frozen. He lives in Missoula with his partner Colleen, and their dogs, Kona and Joni.

Deana works as a Hydrologic Technician for the Lolo National Forest. She has devoted her life to the work, study and play of all forms of water; flowing liquid, fluffy flakes and steamy warmth. During the summers you will find her working deep in the woods of Western Montana, assessing the heath of watersheds, small and large. In the winters, you’ll likely find her slogging through the deep snow, searching for fields of bottomless powder. Given the opportunity, Deana loves to share her passion with young people in a place- based educational forum and watch new connections with the aquatic environment send their faces alight in ways that are priceless.
Tracy Campbell joined the WEN Board in March 2013. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources Management from Colorado State University in Fort Collins and her Master’s degree in Entomology from Montana State University in Bozeman. She has worked as a Environmental Scientist with Morrison-Maierle, Inc. in Missoula since 2009. Her love of the outdoors started at a young age when she attended summer camp in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. She was kayaking whitewater and scaling rock walls way before she could drive. And it was that love of nature and adventure that drew her from metropolis of southeast Florida to the mountains of Colorado. Dreaming of even bigger and more wide open spaces, she decided to venture north to Montana for grad school in 2000. Her roots are now firmly planted in the state in which she and her husband have chosen to raise their three young children. She is honored to serve on the Board of an organization that takes the teaching of good stewardship very seriously and does it in a way that is so much fun!
Carina is a recent addition to the WEN Board, having joined in April 2013. She is a postdoctoral research fellow in University of Montana’s College of Forestry and Conservation. Carina is a social scientist who researches the relationships between people and their environment, hoping to find better ways to create and support socially and ecologically sustainable landscapes. Having grown up ‘playing outside’, she is a strong advocate of getting kids outside to explore and understand their surroundings. Far from her homeland of Australia, Carina fell in love with Montana during her dissertation work and is looking forward to exploring the watersheds and
valleys of Western Montana. When she isn’t stuck behind her computer,
you’ll find Carina playing in the mountains whether on foot, by bike or
sliding downhill on her snowboard.
