During the summers she often serves as a Public Information Officers on wildland fires across the Northern Region of Montana, Idaho, and Dakotas, as well as the nation.

Most recently, Mariah enjoyed working with the communities around the Custer Gallatin National Forest to help bring together a new Forest Plan for the National Forest lands in the area for the coming decade or more. She loves interacting, appreciating, and playing in and around our gorgeous ecosystems we are lucky enough to call home.
