P.J. Tillmann supports Cascadia's Climate, Sustainability, and Natural Resources Planning Practice Area with her technical expertise in climate impacts and adaptation practice, and ten years' experience in public and stakeholder engagement. She leads climate action plans, sustainability 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 leading syntheses of hundreds of scientific journal articles and public comments to inform strategy selection, fine-tuning an engagement plan to meet the needs of diverse stakeholders and project goals, or tailoring recommendations to clients' unique context, P.J. is skilled at facilitating values- and data-driven progress in multi-stakeholder planning processes.
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, driving fast, and dancing the night away.
