Katie Foreman worked for UMCES at the Chesapeake Bay Program for five years as the Non-tidal Water Quality Analyst. She developed the Chesapeake Watershed Stream Health Index which is an overall assessment of benthic health. In addition, she coordinated the non-tidal workgroup, worked on many reports, including the annual Bay Barometer, and participated in many workshops and conferences. We are sad to see Katie leave, but she has a wonderful new opportunity with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. We wish Katie all the best! Christina Lyerly joins UMCES to jointly support IAN and the Chesapeake Bay Program office. She will assist in co-authoring a Lessons Learned brochure, detailing the results of best management practices implemented in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Christina recently completed an MPPEnvironmental Policy and an MSSustainable Development and Conservation Biology at the University of Maryland. She gained experience with Chesapeake Bay water quality issues while working at the World Resources Institute and participating in the DNR's Stream Waders program. Sailing with her family inspired her love of the Bay, and she is excited to help improve its health. In addition to sailing, you will also find her skiing the slopes, hiking, and kayaking in western MD and WV.
