Jessica Moore will begin her duties as the Riverton Museum Site Manager in April.
Jessica was raised in the rural community in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and attended Central Michigan University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Wildlife Biology. Jessica worked for the National Park Service as an Interpretive Ranger for nearly 5 years before returning to school at Michigan State University for a Master's Degree in Park, Recreation and Tourism Resources. At that time Jessica also earned her Certified Interpretive Trainer credential from the National Association for Interpretation.
In 2004, Jessica moved to Washington for a Lead Naturalist position at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. Over the course of her career there, I moved from a Lead Naturalist to the Conservation Program Coordinator and then on to the Education Department Manager where I have spent the last 7 years.
My family and I moved to Lander in August of 2021 and have enjoyed getting settled into the Lander community. I like getting outdoors, walking our dog, reading and traveling, and I look forward to exploring more of the beautiful Wind River Basin. I am excited to join the Riverton Museum and become a part of the Riverton Community as well!
