New Supervisor Selected for the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest

Portland, Ore. – Pacific Northwest Regional Forester Glenn Casamassa announced Jody Weil as the new 
Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Supervisor, effective May 25, 2020. Weil currently serves as 
the Deputy State Director for Resources and Planning for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) 
Arizona State Office in Phoenix.

“I am pleased to welcome Jody as the new Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Supervisor,” said 
Casamassa. “Her extensive experience building relationships while communicating and managing 
natural resource issues will be an asset to the Forest’s landscape restoration and sustainable 
recreation efforts. I am confident her leadership will leave a positive and long-lasting impression 
on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, the Pacific Northwest Region, and the greater Puget 
Sound area.”

Weil began her career with the BLM as a public affairs specialist in Billings, Montana. After 
spending more than a decade in Billings, she transferred to the Alaska State Office, where she 
served as the Chief of External Affairs. There, she was instrumental in building strategic 
relationships with local, state, federal and tribal stakeholders and communicated complex resource 
management issues pertaining to 72 million acres of public lands. In 2006, Weil assumed the duties 
at the BLM Oregon-Washington State Office in Portland, where she led a regional communications team 
of 18 employees. While in Oregon, she also served in line officer detail assignments as the Medford 
District Manager and the Deputy Forest Supervisor for the Umpqua National Forest in Roseburg. She 
recently completed a detail in the BLM Headquarters Office as the Assistant Director of National 
Conservation Lands.

"I am looking forward to working with staff, communities, and stakeholders to manage the 
outstanding and diverse natural resources on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest,” said Weil.

Weil and her husband Doug have two grown boys. In her free time, she enjoys spending time in the 
great outdoors and walking her dogs.
