Conservation of our natural resources, advocating for clients’ rights, lobbying for smart legislation, capacity building for non-profits, and mediating to resolve disputes and retain core relationships is truly a vocation for Gwen.  Concentrating her practice on important quality of life issues and assisting clients in creating a legacy for future generations is both her passion and her purpose.

Gwen knows first-hand that the land and the people who inhabit our ever-growing sub-rural communities need an experienced representative to advocate for their interests at every level of the process.
