A native of eastern Washington, Regan came up home to the Inland Northwest with her young family in 2007. She holds a B.A. in biology from the Colorado College and a research-based M.S. in zoology from the University of Wyoming. She has worked on wildlife issues in multiple states and across a spectrum of fauna, has directed restoration work for the National Park Service and consulted as a technical writer, and is a certified science teacher. Regan has led the land conservation efforts of Kaniksu Land Trust across far north Idaho and northwest Montana since 2013. Her professional and personal interests have always shared the common thread of conservation and responsible stewardship, and she takes great pride in making a lasting contribution in her favorite corner of the world.
As much as possible, Regan spends her free time outdoors with her husband Chad, their two kids, and a dog named Ringo.
