Sharon has been with the Research Station since 1993 and has been involved with the development of many of its major programs. She developed the Artist at Pine Needles residency program, as well as the Friends of the St. Croix Watershed Research Station, and she continues to supervise both programs and organize special events with resident artists and for the Friends.
As Assistant Director, she oversees administrative and programming operations at the Station. These include finance, information technology and operations, communications and outreach, programming, special events, and development. She plans the annual St. Croix River Research Rendezvous, coordinates facility use with visiting scientists, and works with director Dan Engstrom on policy and planning.
Outside of work, from April to October you can find her and husband Jim boating or kayaking on the St. Croix River, or planning their next trip to their favorite haunts in France, Italy or elsewhere in Europe.
