Dedicated to Service
Roberta moved to Southwest Virginia in 1994, returning to her roots to pursue her passion for fish and wildlife conservation in the Southern Appalachians. With a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science and a Master of Science degree in biology, she dedicated more than 35 years of service to local, state, and national conservation efforts. She supervised a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Field Office, mentoring employees and negotiating deals with industry and local, state, and federal government to conserve fish and wildlife habitat on public and private lands. Roberta has a long history of public service. She served two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala, where she learned Spanish and met her husband, with whom she has two children. For over 15 years she has been a volunteer teacher of English to speakers of other languages, helping those far away from their native cultures adjust and feel at home in Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee. Whenever she can, Roberta enjoys finding time for long day hikes, exploring rivers, cooking ethnic foods, reading and being with family and friends.
