Position: Southern Regional Trail Resources Manager

Leanna manages the visitor education (Ridgerunner) program, coordinates trail skills training for affiliate Appalachian Trail clubs, and works with agency partners and cooperating clubs to inventory and assess current and future needs for the protection of the A.T.

Leanna has worked with the ​ATC since 2006, providing assistance with marketing and communications, program development, event organization, and volunteer coordination. Leanna hiked all of the ​A.T. in 2003 and nearly half of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010. The rewards she enjoys while in nature on long trails are those she hopes others will benefit from through her continued work in conservation.
