Del Mar grad student chosen as director of FireSafe Montana

Jennifer Mayberry

After graduating in May with a master of arts degree in the community and environment program from Humboldt State University, Jennifer Mayberry of Del Mar and her partner Joe La Manna, a wildlife biologist and climate change scientist, moved to Missoula, Montana, where Joe received a grant to complete his Ph.D. Jennifer’s expertise in wildfire ecology and FireSafe councils landed her the position of interim director of FireSafe Montana, which entails coordinating fire departments with city councils, county commissioners and neighborhood committees.

Jennifer previously graduated from Santa Fe Christian High in Solana Beach and Westmont College in Santa Barbara. She believes it is vitally important that young people take an active role in preserving and protecting the environment and feels that she has embarked upon her life path in caring for the planet.
