LeAnn Skrzynski has served as Environmental Program Director for the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians since 2003 under an EPA grant, developing and administering policy for the tribe, coordinating community environmental education, while overseeing special projects and several resource protection programs. The broad intersection between tribal cultural and environmental issues often leads to her participation in cultural matters, as well.
LeAnn matriculated at Northern Arizona University, receiving summa cum laude honors in environmental science with a minor in biology. She was inducted into Phi Kappa Phi honor society. Among other federal service, she worked for 4 years with the former Glen Canyon Environmental Studies (now known as the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center) under the Bureau of Reclamation. While serving in this capacity, she gained familiarity with local tribal issues and the broad spectrum of research undertaken in studying the Colorado River ecosystem in relation to the operations of Glen Canyon Dam. This background is instrumental in interpreting scientific perspectives while protecting tribal cultural values at the direction of the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians on the Colorado Plateau.
