Great Rivers is pleased to share that Linden Mueller is returning to the role of our Director of Development and Community Outreach. Linden first came to us in a volunteer capacity in 2016, where she quickly demonstrated her heart and energy for raising support for the work of Great Rivers. The development role was open, and it was a great fit. We brought her onto the team. At the time, she was slated to embark on a series of travels: to visit a reforestation project in India, hike the Himalayas in Nepal, volunteer at a sustainable living retreat in Belize and to study for her MBA in Germany. She was only able to accept the role in an interim position. When the permanent position opened again this May, we were pleased to welcome her back to the team in a permanent capacity.
Linden shares, “There is so much peace, health and renewal to be found in our beautiful natural environment, and I’m elated to work with Great Rivers to protect those benefits for ourselves and for future generations. In my role I will be working to bring Great Rivers to the people: to make us accessible to every individual who can use our services and to seek support so that we can provide those services for many years to come.” She addressed our donors: “We are here only for and because of you, and I am so honored to have the chance in this role to get to know you. Thank you for the chance to serve you in this capacity. I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be.”
In the past, Linden has worked with Earthday365’s Recycling on the Go program, the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, and the Missouri Fund for the Public Interest.
