A retired veterinarian from Amery WI, Dave is a longtime advocate for science-based, natural resources and environmental policy. He is a life-long hunter and outdoor enthusiast. Dave was active in the establishment of the Western Prairie Habitat Restoration Area.
Early on, he became keenly interested in Chronic Wasting Disease and has studied the subject extensively. He continues to be active on that front, giving presentations and serving as a source of scientific information on CWD around the state.
Dave served on the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board from January 2006 to May 2013 including two terms as Chair and thinks the best things about being a former NRB Board member are being a former Board member and having more time to garden, hike, work in the woods and fish the Brule River.
Dave joined the MEA board in 2014 and currently serves as the MEA Board President.
