I Met 'Em On the Trail: Get To Know Our Executive Director Kathleen Wagner

Kathleen Wagner joined the BTC in July as our Executive Director. Kathleen is a native of Colorado, but has lived also in Missouri and Nebraska. She is most at home now in Dillon, Montana. Her background is a mixture of teaching, music, and the outdoors! She enjoys hiking, fly-fishing, biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and pretty much anything that involves being in the outdoors! Her husband is an avid fly fisherman, but loves running, mountain and road biking, climbing, hiking as well, and their two daughters are growing up loving the outdoors as well. Besides loving the outdoors and remaining constantly active in it, Kathleen also has a passion for music and teaching. She has taught general music in the public education system, as well as private lessons of voice and piano in her home studio for ages 5 to 65.

Her background in teaching, fundraising, and working with people in various ages and stages has shaped her to become a versed educator and manager in all areas, indoors and out! Kathleen is excited to help the BTC grow as a group, as well as grow the trail system in Dillon, MT. You can often find her hiking around the Dillon Overlook Trail system, or in town, working on in-town programs, taking their daughters to dance and gymnastics, dining out at local eateries and coffee shops, and always checking on future ideas. She is looking forward to hearing more of the public opinions and thoughts on Nov. 30th at the BTC public input meeting. This will be held at UM Western, 5:30 pm. Please join! Kathleen is glad to be meeting more of the people of Dillon, and her door is always open to new conversation, so feel free to contact her!
