Sarah Porterfield – Western Water Policy Advisor, Trout Unlimited

Say hello to Sarah Porterfield. She is the Western Water Policy Advisor at Trout Unlimited where her work connects TU’s on-the-ground projects with federal policies and programs to create multiple benefits for people and the environment. She focuses largely on the Colorado River Basin and finding an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable future for the lands, waters, and communities that are connected to this river. She received her BA in History from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR and her PhD in History from CU Boulder where her dissertation research focused on the transnational history of the Colorado River Basin. In her spare time, you’ll find her trail running, working with rescue horses, and hanging out with her dogs.
