In 2006, she joined BLM Nevada working in several positions in the Nevada State Office, including management and program analyst, natural resources specialist, fisheries program manager, renewable energy coordinator, and branch manager of renewable resources.
“I look forward to beginning the next chapter of my career with the Carson City District Office and continuing to grow our partnerships. This neighborhood offers countless opportunities for people to explore and enjoy their public lands,” said Dow said in the release. “It’s exciting to be part of this team.”
Dow is a California native and graduated from California State University Sacramento, with a Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology.
Dow’s time away from work is spent with his family participating in Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and sports.
