VICE PRESIDENT: Olleke Rappe-Daniels
Born in Uppsala, Sweden, Olleke immigrated to the US in the early 50s with her family and spent her childhood in California. Since moving to Missoula in 1971 she believes she has been here long enough to consider herself a “Montanan”. She spent 37 years working for the US Forest Service at every level of the organization including Ranger Districts, Forest Supervisors Office, and Regional Office levels as well as several details to the Washington Office. In those assignments she has held technical and professional positions in forestry, administration, recreation, fire and aviation, general resources, public and legislative affairs and ultimately line. Since retirement in 2009 Olleke does some contract work in communications, facilitation and congressional training. She believes deeply in Garden City Harvest’s mission and enjoys her volunteer work with them.
