Amy Austin grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado, as no stranger to the sporting life. Her great grandmother, stepfather and brother in-law all hunted. However, her one foray afield led to the comment that she was “too noisy.” That didn’t stop her from appreciating the outdoors — her favorite scenic locations include Colorado’s Grand Mesa and Cimarron Range.

After earning a bachelor of science degree in business management, Austin discovered Delta Waterfowl while looking for a workplace that would suit her family’s needs. She has since come to further appreciate Delta’s conservation mission, finding it rewarding to help protect wetlands and waterfowl for future generations.

Austin is regarded by her colleagues as a team player and big-picture thinker who contributes skillfully toward the organization’s goals.
