Bend, OR—Bend resident Lori Chapin and Sisters resident Ted Johnson have joined the Deschutes Land Trust’s Board of Directors. Together they will help ensure the Land Trust’s continued success, and bring skills, expertise, and passion for conserving land in Central Oregon to the organization.
Lori Chapin moved to Bend in 2010 to be an internal auditor for the St. Charles Health System. She has more than 15 years of experience in the governance, risk, and compliance field and has a deep commitment to integrity and teamwork. Lori holds bachelor’s degrees in economics and business administration, an MBA from Regis University, and an assortment of professional certifications. In her free time, Lori likes to spend time with her family and dogs, take road trips, and enjoy our region’s natural beauty by fishing, camping, and finding wild, edible plants.
Ted Johnson is a native Oregonian who currently calls Sisters home. He graduated from Oregon State University and went on to earn a law degree from the University of Puget Sound. After practicing both tax and corporate law and holding a position of in-house council for J.P. Morgan, Ted moved to Sisters in 2001 and began working for Bank of the Cascades. During his 10 years with the Bank of the Cascades, Ted worked in commercial lending and retired as Central Oregon Area Manager. Ted loves to spend time running and hiking in the wilderness around Sisters each day with his two dogs. He also likes to explore the state with his wife and discover new places to eat, hike, and enjoy nature.
“We’re truly thrilled with the addition of Lori and Ted to the Land Trust’s Board of Directors,” says executive director, Brad Chalfant. “Their skills and backgrounds are huge assets, particularly as we continue our landmark Campaign for Whychus Creek.”
