Sarah Janicki, Program Coordinator
Sarah joins the NPCA team as the Northern Rockies Regional Program Coordinator where she is ambitious to help protect and preserve those parks that have had the most profound impact on her life- Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier National Parks. She has spent the last nine years working in the tourism industry just twenty-five miles from the Northern Entrance to Yellowstone, and has been able to explore and share the beauty of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem with family, friends, and visiting guests. With her experience and knowledge of the local communities and economy she is looking forward to contributing to the campaigns of the Northern Rockies Region. Sarah currently resides just outside of Bozeman, Montana near the Bridger Mountain range. Her hobbies include traveling, trail running, hiking, and enjoying spectacular mountain views with friends and family.
