October is National Forest Products Month and National Forest Products Week is October 18th - 22nd this year! We are celebrating with Oregon Women in Timber episodes. See them here: www.orwit.org ~ Our first guest is Corinne and she is an inspiration with an engineering background. We enjoyed learning more about her work and her love of the forestry field. Tune in today to hear more about her story!
~Corinne Walters is a forester and engineer for a small, family-owned timber company in McMinnville, Oregon. She spends her workdays planning and laying out harvest units, designing new roads and culverts, and maintaining the mapping system. Her free time is spent with her husband Austin, helping him with his growing business and having fun – running, exploring, and spending time with family and friends. Corinne grew up in a family that cherished time spent outdoors and the natural resources that Oregon has to offer, and although she started college with civil engineering in mind, she ended up back at her roots in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University (www.forestry.oregonstate.edu). She joined Oregon Women in Timber when she was going to school and has remained involved due to the important outreach OWIT provides and the fun ladies she gets to spend time with.~
