Hi, I'm Willow!
Willow Walker serves as the Office Manager for Green River Preserve. She is thrilled to join the GRP family in May 2016, and she’ll be the main contact for all office related correspondence, bookkeeping, payroll, and other office administrative needs.
A local from Hendersonville, North Carolina, Willow started attending two summer camps each year at the age of 6, and continued as a Counselor-in-Training (CIT) until she was 15. Given her camp experience, and growing up beside a summer camp which was her backyard in the off season, she developed a strong love of all things camp and outdoor related which continues to this day.
Willow graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville with a degree in Mass Communication and a minor in Economics. She has worked in wide range of fields during her 20+ year professional career, including work in the Zero Waste industry in California, for several nonprofits including the Asheville Symphony and the North Asheville Tailgate Market, and most recently as the Executive Director for a small nonprofit serving veterans in Asheville, North Carolina. She is also a student of medicinal herbs and is a certified Jin Shin Jyutsu healing arts practitioner. When not in the office, Willow enjoys spending time hiking with her dog Mabel, reading, practicing ecstatic dance, and making beaded jewelry.
