Amy May, Executive Director, amy@treeutah.org

Amy developed her love of urban trees as a child growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After working a summer job in Colorado during college, she knew she had to move out west. She fell in love with the Utah desert on a road trip in 1995, and between Moab and Salt Lake City, has called it home ever since. Locally, she worked at KRCL community radio for almost thirteen years, and still volunteers helping with fundraising and outreach. She’s passionate about the environment, ecology and bringing communities together through tree planting and stewardship activities. When not at work you can find her in her permaculture garden or exploring mountain trails in the Wasatch and Uintas.
