Ronni is the founder of Washington Outdoor Women. Laying the groundwork in 1997, she began what she describes as her most memorable project: she founded WOW in 1998 and served as its Director for 21 years. With her background in education and teaching, WOW seemed the natural path to connect women with positive outdoor experiences via hands-on skills education. Her pro-active belief in outdoor skills training for all generations continues to reinforce the WOW program’s mission. She and her family have solid Northwest roots and a strong commitment to sustainability, habitat/wildlife conservation, and outdoor education. Ronni is the recipient of the 2011 Governor’s Recognition Award and the 2018 Karen M. Fant Founder’s award.
