Shahla Werner

Werner is director of the Madison-based John Muir Chapter of the Sierra Club. The work is very different from her previous position as a forest entomologist with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources—and from her doctoral research on ground beetle biodiversity—but she relishes the opportunities her job offers for meaningful change. “My most satisfying moments are when I can tell we’ve made a key difference on things that matter,” she says.
