 — 2014 Board of Directors Nominees —

Steve Crowley (Boise) Steve grew up in Adelaide South Australia (the driest state on the driest continent on earth) as a result he’s been very aware of both beer and the environment for most of his life. Steve moved to Idaho in the fall of 2006 to work at Boise State University and joined the Snake River Alliance in early 2009. Since then Steve has appeared in a variety of SRA events – playing an ear of corn, the legs of a dove and a random executive…. It is clearly time for the SRA to make use of his ‘talents’ in a behind the scenes role.

Jasmine Furnish  (Ketchum) Jasmine is a health professional with over ten years of field, laboratory and clinical research experience. Her research philosophy is to examine the intersection of theory and practice, engage health professionals and the communes they serve in meaningful, productive dialogue and develop best-practice models in order to promote health as a human right. Jasmine holds a Master of Public Health from UC Berkeley’s Division of Infectious Diseases & Vaccinology. Her interest in infectious diseases was born out of her passion for international travel, however, her current adventure involves raising a small human. An Idaho native, Jasmine loves mountains, deserts and rivers so when she’s not crunching data she can probably be found outside. She has been a member of the Snake River Alliance since returning to Idaho this past summer.

Molly Kukachka (Boise) Molly is new to the Snake River Alliance.  She was raised in Soda Springs and graduated from the College of Idaho with a degree in Environmental Studies.  She has enjoyed exposure to other cultures, teaching English in Russia and Taiwan.
