John Liu

Robyn Paulekas is a Senior Mediator and Program Director at Meridian Institute. She has led and supported both domestic and international projects on agriculture, water, conservation, outdoor recreation, and climate change—often working at the nexus of more than one of these issues. She currently facilitates a group of ranchers, researchers, NGOs, and others who are exploring the intersection of western rangelands and data. They are digging into some big, hard topics like public land grazing, as well as drought and ranch resilience.

Robyn has extensive experience finding and catalyzing collaborative solutions. Prior to Meridian, Robyn applied geospatial information to find solutions to water-related conflict in the Klamath Basin in Oregon. At the University of Wyoming Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources, she supported multi-stakeholder dialogues on energy, climate change, and endangered species.

Away from work, Robyn can be found chasing her two wild and curious sons through the mountains, prairies, and rivers of the West.
