Cortney Mycroft joins WAFWA
The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) would like to welcome Mrs. Cortney Mycroft to the team as their new Coordinator of Executive Operations and Communications! Starting in mid-December, Cortney will be directly supporting WAFWA’s executive operations with administrative management, logistical planning, and communications.
“Cortney is an experienced and talented professional whose quality of work and diverse skills will help to address multiple needs within WAFWA,” said executive director Zach Lowe. “We are excited to have her join the team and help us to elevate operational capacity and grow our outreach over time.”
Cortney has extensive natural resources education and human dimensions experience and well-honed project management skills. In addition, she is no stranger to Fish and Wildlife agency leadership. In the past, she frequented regional and national AFWA meetings as a senior research analyst with Southwick Associates presenting statistical and economic research related to fishing and wildlife. Most recently, Cortney was an instructor and lab coordinator at Purdue University’s Department of Forestry and Natural Resources.
“WAFWA plays a distinct role in natural resources management across the Western United States and Canada, and I’m excited to get started,” said Mycroft. “Being able to work on this scale is an honor and a privilege.” Cortney and her family live in Indiana where they enjoy kayaking, hiking, and camping. Cortney loves a challenging jigsaw puzzle and reading anything from field guides to biographies to science fiction.
