Audrey Graham

Audrey moved to Moab in 1984 for her dream job as a park ranger at the Needles District of Canyonlands. She now works for the South East Early Intervention Program, serving children aged 0-3 with developmental delays and their families.

 

Audrey discovered her passion for helping solve the affordable housing dilemma while working with families in their homes through her work with Early Intervention. Audrey was a founding member of the MACLT board in 2012 and became a believer in land trusts through the work of Lance Christie, a local volunteer planner and thinker, who saw land trusts as a perfect solution to high cost land in resort communities.

 

In her free time, Audrey serves on numerous boards and loves to sew, rollerblade, ski, bike, and explore canyon country with her husband of 35 years.
