Under Pip's leadership, philanthropy at NOLS has been integrated into all aspects of the organization, which has helped strengthen the school's long-term financial stability.
She has successfully led a $10 million capital campaign to build a new headquarters building and renovate the historic Noble Hotel in Lander. This was followed by the largest campaign, to date, a $20 million comprehensive campaign in support of NOLS' strategic goals, which was completed ahead of schedule at the end of 2013.
Pip started as a NOLS student in 1991 and began her career with NOLS as an Instructor in 1992. She co-managed the NOLS Utah River Base from 1993 to 1997 before serving as the operations manager for NOLS East Africa. Her last position before her current directorship was as the NOLS Alumni Relations Manager.
Pip lives in Lander in a hundred-year-old house she renovated. She is an active runner, road biker, paddler, and skier. She still works courses, mainly river based, for NOLS when her schedule permits. Pip loves any project that utilizes her many talents, and her friends refer to her as the Martha Stewart of Wyoming.
