Shasta Zielke joins Oregon Wild as the Membership and Event Manager, and is thrilled to be working to protect Oregon’s wildlands, wildlife, and waters. Her move to Oregon, in 2010, was made mostly from a desire to explore and live among Oregon’s wild places. She’s still working on getting to all of these amazing places in person, and is excited that her professional life will now lend itself to this endeavor.
Shasta comes to Oregon Wild with a varied background in health and wellness, development, and event planning, mostly in the non-profit sector. Growing up in Kansas, she loved to be outside as much as possible, and always looked forward to summer vacations in the Rocky Mountains filled with hiking and fishing. Her move to Oregon, and work at Oregon Wild, helps her combine her passions for the outdoors and recreation with the means and opportunity to help protect the wilderness that makes this recreation possible.
Personally, Shasta enjoys planning adventures, hiking as much as possible, and exploring new corners of Portland. She also enjoys running, sampling all the craft beers and coffee she can find, reading, watching movies, and following college basketball – particularly her alma mater, the Kansas Jayhawks.
