A  CONVERSATION WITH CHIEF OF FACILITY OPERATIONS:  
Karin Christensen
Karin Christensen played an important role in the original planning and construction of our campus. Long before scripted "greening models" were on the market, NCTC began a forward greening movement that continues today.  Even as the NCTC land purchase was underway and preparations made for architectural design to begin, the Fish and Wildlife Service stepped outside common federal construction processes to build a campus facility that struck harmony with the surrounding terrain and meshed with the local farm setting.  Karin's presentation will offer Friends an inside view of campus sustainability efforts, recycled materials built into the facility, and our connectivity to the federal government greening initiatives. 

Karin Christensen, the Chief of Facility Operations, has been with the Service for 30 years. As a computer programmer, she started her career in the regional office of Albuquerque, New Mexico and from there served at headquarters under Realty and Wildlife Support Staff. Karin's major is in business management, but she has spent much of her career in Information Technology roles. In 1995, Karin joined the Services training team while the construction of NCTC had just gotten underway. Today, she oversees the Registrar's Guest Services Operations, Information Technology Team, Facility Management Branch, and Land Management Practices.
