Volunteer Profile: Mitzi VanVoorhis

March 13, 2019

INLC welcomes Mitzi VanVoorhis, Vice President of Marketing for McConkey Auction Group, to the board of directors. In the few short months since her election she has already become chair of the External Affairs Committee, where she is applying her expertise in marketing and promotion to help expand INLC’s reach through increased donations and land protected.

Exemplifying her philosophy of “living life fully,” in addition to an active professional career Mitzi is a tireless volunteer, with everything from helping coordinate sock and winter gear drives for Union Gospel Mission to co-chairing a Second Harvest Bite2Go program and mentoring children at Sunset Elementary School.

A transplant of California, where she was raised on a working ranch, Mitzi enjoys swimming, trail walking, and cycling—particularly on the Hiawatha Trail. She also likes spending time at her family cabin in Twin Lakes.

At INLC, Mitzi wants to help build support for our strong vision in conservation, and in “connecting people to our magnificent lands and waters.” It is important to her to be part of something that has a positive effect on future generations. INLC is grateful to her for choosing to share her considerable talents, passion, and energy.
