Lisa Remlinger is the Chief Policy Officer for Washington Environmental Council and Washington Conservation Voters. Lisa oversees all policy teams including climate, forests, and Puget Sound. Some of Lisa’s notable work for WEC includes the creation of our annual Carbon Friendly Forestry Conference, State of Our Public Lands Report Card, and the Nisqually Carbon Project. Lisa has worked for non-profits most of her career because they are her happy place where she feels she can make a difference and work with others who want to do the same. Lisa has a Masters of Environmental Management from Duke University where she published work on public health, conservation, and development collaboration as well as received a policy fellowship to work with the United Nations Environmental Program in Geneva. When not at work Lisa is usually with her husband, son, and friends. She has also served on various boards including Wolf Haven International. Always up for a new challenge, Lisa has summited Mt Rainier, coached long-distance running, swam across lake Washington, and biked from Vancouver, BC to Portland, OR.
