Western Region

About the Team

Western Region Team members represent the diversity of programs within the region, provide expertise and connections to address regional challenges, exchange insights from both headquarters and field perspectives, and improve the understanding of NOAA’s broad mission and regional capabilities.

The team is co-managed by two Team Leads: one located in the coastal sub-region and one located in the intermountain sub-region. This dual leadership works well given the sheer geographic expanse and ecological complexity of the region. The Team Leads work together to make sure intermountain and coastal issues are considered and balanced in the context of the entire region, and that team members are collectively working together to achieve team success.
