We wish Sara Minkoff the best as she retires following a seven-year career at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Sara has been the Urban Forestry Council Liaison since 2015. She added a second LTE position the following year which supports regionally-based Urban Forestry Coordinators.
“I have had a very rewarding experience during my time with the DNR and have had the honor and privilege of working with an amazing team of hard working and dedicated professionals who also deeply care about each other,” Sara said. “The best part of my DNR experience has been working with the Urban Forestry Team. I will miss the camaraderie and opportunity to work together to ensure Wisconsin has healthy urban forests for all Wisconsinites.”
Her supervisor, Jeff Roe, praised Sara for her work effort. “I have enjoyed working with Sara, her passion and dedication are inspiring. Her experience and desire to help shape the Urban Forestry Council to have as much value to the members as to the DNR has made it stronger. She is a wonderful team member and very connected and supportive of staff. I will miss our discussions and debates on improvements, agency culture and development.”
Sara’s last day was April 1.
