P.J. Tillmann supports Cascadia’s Climate, Sustainability, and Natural Resources Planning Practice Area with her technical grounding in climate impacts and adaptation practice, and over seven years’ experience in public and stakeholder engagement. She contributes to vulnerability assessments, climate action plans, and other strategic planning efforts with cities, tribes, and other entities. Before joining Cascadia, P.J. worked with the World Wildlife Fund’s Natural Capital Project to improve the use of an ecosystem services tool in decision making, prepared state-of-the-science reports and facilitated multi-stakeholder groups with the National Wildlife Federation’s climate adaptation team, and managed the design and implementation of comprehensive public engagement processes with EnviroIssues. Whether combing through hundreds of scientific journal articles and public comments or fine-tuning an agenda to meet the needs of diverse stakeholders and project goals, P.J. is skilled at facilitating progress in multi-stakeholder planning processes in local, regional, and international settings.
P.J. holds a B.S. in Chemistry (her first academic love), a Master in Public Policy and Administration, and an abiding belief that pineapple is the perfect food. P.J. also enjoys gardening and traveling with her partner, cozying up with a good book after a long bike ride, and dancing the night away.
