We have exciting news! Please welcome our new Executive Director, Celine Beaucamp-Stout!
Celine grew up in the north of France, in Arras. Later she moved with her family to the French Alps region, finished high school and continued on to earn her bachelor degree in Environment and Geology from Université de Savoie. Afterwards she travelled to Montreal and finished a Masters degree in Economic geology from the Université du Québec à Montréal.
Later she moved to Vancouver, and then moved to Elko, Nevada as a mining geologist. She met her now husband and the rest is history. They later moved to Dillon, MT to be closer to his family in the summer of 2015.
Since moving to Dillon, MT, Celine has volunteered with the Forest Service hydro group, subbed in the schools, and began working at the University of Montana Western.
Along with being the Executive Director for the BTC, Celine is also a Yellowstone Geology Tour Instructor with Road Scholar, Geology Adjunct Instructor with the Environmental Sciences Department, and a Substitute Teacher at Beaverhead County High School.
On the weekend you may find her around the area hiking, camping, fishing, gathering wood or taking a scenic drive in the Grasshopper Valley. She also loves a good cup of coffee, and strolling our downtown area. If you see Celine, introduce yourself and say hi!
On another note… our former Executive Director, Kathleen Wagner will still be working with the Beaverhead Trails Coalition, in a lesser capacity. She will be continuing to write grants for the BTC, maintain website, and help with work overflow. Kathleen also will help with finalizing our Five Year Strategy.
