Amy Henricksen, Jill Shriver and Lisa Schott (from left to right) welcome the opportunity to meet with anyone interested in learning more about conserving land within a five-mile radius of Kenyon College. Partnerships are key to our work and we are fortunate to work with many community partners and students and staff at the College who are committed to protecting local farmland and natural resources. We also appreciate the opportunity to work closely with student interns who help spread the word about our mission and provide creative content for the conservancy's blog, A Knox County Almanac.
Read more below about the staff and student interns.

Lisa attended Kenyon College in the late 1970s and found respite from academic life by taking long walks off the Hill where she developed a lifelong love of the Kokosing River and the land surrounding the College. She returned to Kenyon in 1985 and worked for 25 years in alumni and parent engagement. She still can't believe her good fortune in being offered the position of managing director of Philander Chase Conservancy in 2010. Lisa and her husband Stu still love to take walks, especially at Kokosing Nature Preserve and to Walkers' Pond, both conserved by Philander Chase Conservancy.

Amy joined the staff of Kenyon College in September of 2004 and began working with the Philander Chase Conservancy in 2013. While Amy assists in all aspects of the work of the conservancy, her primary focus has been the creation and management of the Kokosing Nature Preserve, central Ohio's first and only conservation burial ground offering a green burial option in a beautiful, natural setting. Amy earned an undergraduate degree in business administration from Alma College and a graduate degree in health administration from The Ohio State University. She and her husband, Chris, live in Mount Vernon with their two children.
