Success! Meet our new Waterfowl Staff

We’ve been busy last month finding exactly the right folks for two new positions and we’re happy to say we’ve done it!  Leslie Milby and Heather Grant here to support our volunteers in creating a great 2017 Waterfowl Festival and to get the word out to new visitors!

MilbyLeslie Milby of Cordova comes on board as WC’s new Festival and Events Manager. Milby will be coordinating and managing the annual Waterfowl Festival and helping with new events as Waterfowl Chesapeake works to expand its community and conservation outreach.

As part of a family who goose hunts together even before presents on Christmas morning, Milby is excited to be a part of an organization focused on preserving both the land and traditions of the Eastern Shore. As a Waterfowl Festival-goer for many years, she’s excited about seeing how all the work and volunteer committees bring all “nooks and crannies” together to orchestrate this big-time, small-town event.

headshotIn addition, Easton resident Heather Grant has joined the staff as the part-time Waterfowl Festival Marketing Manager. In this position, Grant is responsible for the development and execution of all marketing and communication campaigns, including print and digital advertising, web development, marketing collateral, social media, and public relations relating to the Festival.

Grant, who is originally from Connecticut, has been a resident of the Eastern Shore
and a Festival-goer since 2003. She has a Masters in Publication Design from the University of Baltimore and a BA in Journalism from the University of New Hampshire. With over 20 years of marketing, communications, graphic and web design experience, she brings experience and talent to the WF promotional team. With social media and the web at the forefront of current marketing practices, Grant will look to increase the Festival’s presence in those realms, while continuing to work with traditional media outlets like print, TV and radio.
