Professional Development

Krista Koehl Professional Development Series

Each year the Education Committees from each region organize three events as part of the Krista Koehl Professional Development Series that aim to enhance career, communication and leadership skills for women in environmental fields. In 2017 the Portland Committee's events focused on "Career Planning"  while the Seattle Committee focused on education for a "Secure Future."  Check the Events page for upcoming events.


Our friend Krista Koehl

The Professional Development Series was named after our friend, colleague, and former WIE board member, Krista Koehl, who died on September 6, 2013.  A founding member of WIE, Krista was a strong and gifted leader and an enthusiastic supporter of WIE’s mission, educational programs, and networking opportunities. We will be forever grateful for her support and guidance.

To honor her life and achievements, Krista’s alma mater, Lewis & Clark Law School, has set up a scholarship fund in her name. For information on how to contribute, click here
