Justinn has a deep family connection to the Coosa Valley and has always loved playing outside as much as possible. She’s proud to work to restore and protect the Coosa- it’s been a constant part of her life!

Growing up in the Coosa Valley, Justinn spent time fishing and exploring the banks of the river with her parents. Years later, she got married at Alabama 4-H Center on Lay Lake.

As the Executive Director, she ensures Coosa Riverkeeper has the resources needed to fight for swimmable, drinkable, and fishable water. She also coordinates many other aspects of our organization such as membership, capacity building, special events, and outreach.

In 2015, Justinn was one of four women highlighted by Southern Living as “Women of Worth,” a short list of women who are dedicated to improving the lives of Southerners in need.  Click here to see the article.

Before joining the staff of Coosa Riverkeeper, she worked with the Alabama Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council implementing the Building Green Jobs for Alabama program, a statewide federally funded workforce development grant. During her time at USGBC Alabama, she trained 300+ Alabamians about green building principles and sustainability.
