U.S. National Park Service (NPS) has announced Sarah Davis as its new Chief of Resource and Visitor Protection at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho.

 

A native of Lexington, North Carolina, alumna of Denison University in Granville, Ohio (from which she graduated with a degree in History) and graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy, Davis is a A 20-year NPS veteran and will become the park's 18th chief ranger since NPS assumed responsibility for its management over a century ago. 

 

Davis has served as chief ranger at Natchez Trace Parkway since 2012 where she has led law enforcement and emergency medical services, search and rescue, wildland and structural fire, special use permits, commercial use authorizations, and dispatch within the 444-mile recreational road and scenic drive that travels through three states. Davis also managed a staff of 40 and a US $3.5 million budget. In 2016 she received the first Southeast Region Excellence Award for professional leadership among chief rangers.  

Previously, Davis served as the acting superintendent at Vicksburg and Guilford Courthouse National Military Parks, NPS branch chief of law enforcement operations, NPS acting deputy chief of operations and policy, and deputy chief ranger at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. She also held a wide range of assignments at Manassas National Battlefield Park, Independence National Historic Park, Assateague Island National Seashore, and Blue Ridge Parkway.  



In her new role, Davis will oversee more than 275 employees in Yellowstone’s Resource and Visitor Protection division who perform law enforcement and emergency medical services, search and rescue, wildland and structural fire, dispatch, fee collection, special use permitting, trails, corrals, and backcountry operations.

Announcing the appointment, Superintendent Cam Sholly, said:

"Sarah is an outstanding leader with a track record of high performance, strategic thinking, and collaboration,” said Superintendent Sholly. “We’re lucky to have her join the Yellowstone team."


Davis added:

"It is an honor and privilege to be selected for this position.

 

"I’m excited to join the Yellowstone team, and work together to protect our first national park and its visitors, and ensure the health, safety, and wellness of our employees."
