--- Serve as a member of the DNR's Senior Management Team to provide collaborative and coordinated leadership of DNR activities.
--- Develop and implement a Division structure that executes at a high level, working within broader department goals, and as part of a collaborative One DNR approach with other DNR divisions.
--- In conjunction with the Commissioner's Office, direct the legislative processes affecting the Division, including developing and presenting proposals for statutory changes and funding requirements, testifying on other aspects of the Division's work, and working with individual legislators.
--- Incorporate proactive and strategic communications that connect DNR's work to existing and new audiences using appropriate media platforms and approaches. Support efforts to expand DNR communications to reach wider audiences.
--- Serve as the DNR liaison with other states, the federal government, and Minnesota Native American Bands on management of ecological and water resources.
