District staffing changes in the air


The month of September marked a couple of big changes here at RWMWD. On Sept. 8, Administrative Secretary Carole Pastorius retired after 19 years. Her hard work and attention to detail was an asset to countless projects and helped keep our operations running smoothly.
We appreciate her commitment to the District’s mission, her dedication to our environmental work and the individualized support she provided each of us. We wish Carole the very best in her retirement!
Also this month, we welcomed Chris O’Brien to our team in the role of communications coordinator. This is a new position created to guide the strategic planning, implementation and continuous improvement of all District communications efforts.
Since graduating from Winona State University with a degree in Mass Communication, Chris has worked as an editor for North American Fisherman magazine, marketing coordinator and project manager for Supervalu Store Design Services, and most recently, an information officer for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. An avid fisherman and musician, Chris lives in the Battle Creek neighborhood of Saint Paul with his wife, Kim, and their two young sons, Henry and Everett.
