North Florida Land Trust is pleased to announce Heather Nagy has joined the nonprofit land conservation organization as a real estate coordinator. Nagy will work with the director of real estate and community conservation to coordinate land transactions, manage the real estate database and research potential real estate projects.
Nagy comes to NFLT after working for three years at Peninsula Open Space Trust in California where she managed the conservation easement program and helped facilitate acquisition projects. She also worked with Tar River Land Conservancy in North Carolina. There she helped develop a strategic conservation plan for the Upper Tar River Basin.
Nagy earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida, her masters of environmental management from Duke University and has received a graduate certificate in geographic information systems (GIS). For her master’s project, Nagy researched lemur habitat in a national park in Madagascar and developed a GIS-based model of forest loss to help guide future conservation projects in the area.
Nagy is a Florida native and was born and raised in Clearwater. She currently lives in Orange Park.
