Wilson helps prepare professional fundraising packages for SELC’s foundation supporters, taking the complicated technical work of our attorneys and translating it into understandable narratives. He also oversees production of SELC’s quarterly newsletter and writes updates to supporters when SELC gets a big win. He’s proud of SELC’s mission to protect the most important things, including clean air and clean water.

A native of Georgia, Wilson now lives in Charlottesville. He has an indelible memory of a college backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail that included waking on Big Bald and watching the sun rise over golden mountain meadows.

The key to SELC’s success is our people. Consider joining our team to defend this region’s air, water, and natural treasures.
